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.
He has been granted police bail in relation to the possession with intent matter.
Detective Sergeant Steve Willetts, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “The officers on patrol used great skill and bravery in carrying out this car stop and arresting a suspect. They also carried out an exemplary search of the vehicle.
“I’m pleased we have been able to charge a suspect and he will now appear before the courts.”
