TASER device found in top of a washing basket in Sneinton during raid

A 29-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of possessing a firearm and possession with intent to supply class A and class B drugs.

A weapon designed to shock people with electricity volts was found carelessly discarded on the top of a washing basket as officers conducted a drugs warrant earlier this week.

The TASER weapon was swiftly seized and recovered by officers from the City South Neighbourhood Policing team after it was found during a warrant after they received intelligence of drug-related activity at the property in Trent Road, Sneinton Hermitage.

A quantity of cannabis, suspected class A drugs, cash, and mobile phones were also recovered during the action on Tuesday 31 August 2021.

A 29-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of possessing a firearm and possession with intent to supply class A and class B drugs.

Inspector Karl Thomas, of Nottinghamshire Police said: “This was a successful piece of work led by PC Man Wong which has now resulted in a weapon, that is debilitating to those on the receiving end, being recovered.

“This is testament to the proactive approach of the neighbourhood team as this find and seizure was a result of conducting a drugs warrant and acting on information we have been given.

“We also recovered a quantity of drugs as well as mobile phones and cash and it is extremely positive that these are now out of circulation. Drugs activity is something we take really seriously because not only is possession of these substances illegal in it’s own right, but it can also be linked to wider criminality.

“We continue to urge anyone with information or concerns about crime in the area to contact us directly so we can act on this at the earliest opportunity.
