Excellent police teamwork on the road resulted in a man’s arrest and substantial amounts of drugs and cash being recovered.

Officers spotted a car which was believed to be linked to the supply of drugs and three police vehicles were used to box it in.

It was brought to a stop at the junction of the A617 and A60 Nottingham Road at Mansfield.

The driver and vehicle were searched and more than 100 wraps of suspected class A drugs and a large quantity of cash were seized.

The proactive police stop was carried out just before 10.40pm yesterday (Sunday 5 December 2021).
