Suspected drug dealer stopped by undercover police appears in court

A 29-year-old man has been charged with drug offences following an undercover police operation.

Stefan Plazinski was stopped by plain-clothed officers in Clinton Street, Nottingham city centre, on 1 March after he was thought to be acting suspiciously.

He was searched and subsequently arrested on suspicion of possessing heroin and cocaine, before being released under investigation.

On March 9, he was stopped again by undercover officers in St Ann’s Well Road and arrested for the same offences.

Plazinski, of Chandos Street, St Ann’s, has now been charged with possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
