A quantity of drugs, suspected to be heroin and crack cocaine, was seized from the property in Longdale Road.

A 31-year-old man was arrested for possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply. Investigations are ongoing.

Officers executed the search warrants simultaneously as part of a crackdown targeting the supply of drugs in the city.

Superintendent Mat Healey, of Nottinghamshire Police, said the force had received numerous allegations of drug dealing in the Edwards Lane Estate area and that he was pleased the raids had led to an arrest.

He said: “Nottinghamshire Police is committed to disrupting the illicit supply of drugs in our communities and we will use every tool and tactic at our disposal to remove these illegal substances from circulation.

“We won’t tolerate drug-related crime which spreads harm and misery in our communities but we can’t tackle this alone. We rely on the support of the public to build intelligence on drug-related issues so that we can act on their concerns.

“I would urge anyone who has information about the supply of drugs in their area to report the matter to Nottinghamshire Police on 101, or anonymously through  Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
