Suspect charged after 50 deal bags of cocaine found after car stopped twice

A Huthwaite man has been charged after police found deals of cocaine in a car.

Officers seized more than 50 bags of the Class A drug during two separate stops of the same car in Sutton-in-Ashfield.

Police were patrolling the area during the early hours of Saturday (18 November) morning when they pulled over the vehicle in Stoneyford Road.

This followed a separate incident a couple of weeks earlier on 3 November, when the same car was stopped by police on the A38, near Farmwell Lane.

Multiple bags and wraps of cocaine were recovered during both stops by the response officers in attendance, along with a quantity of cash.

A man from Huthwaite was charged with two counts of possessing with intent to supply Class A drugs.

The 33-year-old attended Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Monday (20 November), where he was remanded in custody until his next appearance at Nottingham Crown Court on 18 December 2023.

PC Chelsea Seals, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“Drugs can cause horrendous damage to people’s lives and impact the wider community too, which is precisely why we’re so committed as a force to taking these substances off our streets.

“We will continue to do whatever we can to put anyone we suspect of being involved in this activity before the courts.”
