A man was caught in possession of a knife and Class A drugs after knife crime team operation.

After a search of Rock’s flat in Mansfield Road, Woodthorpe was carried out, officers found wraps of crack cocaine and heroin.

Rock was subsequently charged and pleaded guilty to possession of a knife in a public place and possession of Class A drugs.

He was locked up when he appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court for sentencing on Monday (10 June 2024).

PC Ken Tinley, of the knife crime team, said: “Tackling knife crime, associated violence and removing dangerous weapons from our streets are things we continuously work on all year-round. 

“This includes being a visible presence in areas, acting on intelligence we receive, and targeting individuals believed to be involved in knife and drug-related crime. 

“Those who choose to carry knives need to realise this can only lead to negative consequences. They’re more likely to get injured or stabbed themselves, as situations involving weapons can quickly get out of control. 

“Anyone found in possession of a knife could end up with a criminal record while, particularly if they use knives to hurt someone, they can expect to spend time in prison.”

Rock was jailed for four months.
