Suspected drug deal in Nottingham leads police to cocaine and heroin haul

Police were led to a haul of cocaine, heroin and cash after a keen-eyed officer witnessed a suspected drug deal.

The suspicious activity was witnessed by a plain-clothed officer in the Garfield Road area of Radford at around 5.30pm on Friday.

A marked police car arrived soon afterwards and, after a brief foot chase, a suspect was detained in nearby Radford Boulevard.

During an initial search officers found around 40 wraps of what is believed to be cocaine and heroin, a burner-style mobile phone, and £109 in cash.

A subsequent search of a property on Coleridge Street led officers to another haul of a similar size and around £1,000. Two knives were also seized.
