Three men have been arrested in connection with drug supply and production following a police raid this morning.

Officers found suspected class A and B drugs when they carried out a planned warrant in the Tithby Road area of Bingham at around 6.30am.

The men, aged 27, 29 and 31, were arrested at the scene on suspicion of conspiracy to supply class A drugs, possession with intent to supply controlled drugs and money laundering.

Detective Sergeant Julian Eminson-Ferry, of Nottinghamshire’s criminal investigation department, said: “We carried out this search based on intelligence and information provided from members of the public and it has led to us discovering a large quantity of suspected drugs which has now been taken out of circulation.

“The suspects remain in custody while our enquiries continue.

“We encourage people to continue to report information to us on 101, no matter how small, as it might just be the vital piece needed to carry out enforcement action.

“We continue our hard work to disrupt the drugs network in Nottinghamshire. Whether that’s by prosecuting drug dealers or supporting vulnerable people to break free from a particular lifestyle.

“Our message is clear, if you’re a drug dealer in Nottinghamshire, we will use every tactic available to us to locate, enforce and prosecute you.”
