Police arrest wanted man in early morning Basford raid

Police caught a wanted man on suspicion of supplying drugs when they executed an early morning warrant in Basford.

Fourteen officers carried out two warrants in Brooklyn Road and Bailey Street at around 8.30am on Tuesday, November 15.

Police smashed through the front door of a property in Bailey Street and arrested a man wanted by Lincolnshire Police.

He was arrested on suspicion with intent to supply drugs (Class A).

Police also attended an address in Brooklyn Road where an offensive weapon – an extendable baton – was recovered.

Scales and wrap bags were also found at the address. Mobile phones have now been seized to build up an intelligence picture.

The warrants were carried out by the Operation Reacher team and local neighbourhood officers.

Sergeant Tracey Perkins said: “We know the effects that drug supply has on our local neighbourhoods. It brings with it anti-social behaviour and violence, sometimes with people getting seriously hurt or exploited.

“We will continue to carry out these warrants to ensure that our residents do not have to endure this behaviour on their streets.

“Not only have we potentially taken an offensive weapon off the streets today we have also caught a man wanted by Lincolnshire Police.

“This is very much an active investigation as we start to build up an intelligence picture.

“We would urge anyone who believes that drug activity is taking place in their area to get in touch. You shouldn’t have to tolerate it in silence and we will act on all intelligence we are given.”
