Police officer injured in suspected drugs arrest in Rushcliffe village

A man has been charged with a number of offences after police found canisters of suspected nitrous oxide during a car search.

Officers on patrol pulled over a vehicle in Hoe View Road, Cropwell Bishop, Rushcliffe at around 12.40 am on Sunday (4 June).

A suspect was found to be in possession of a large amount of cash and when officers searched the car they found a number of canisters inside.

Officers arrested the suspect on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a psychoactive substance. One officer suffered minor injuries after being assaulted while arresting him.

A 19-year-old man has now been charged with assault with intent to resist arrest and driving without a licence or insurance. He is due to appear before Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on 21 June.

“I’m pleased we have been able to charge a suspect and he will now appear before the courts.”
