Teenager charged after Class A drugs discovered in Nottingham house

Detectives have charged a suspect as part of an investigation into the supply of Class A drugs.

A quantity of controlled drugs was discovered inside a house in Radford following proactive police work.

Officers from the city knife crime team were out on patrol in the area on 18 July 2022 when a stop-and-search led to Class A drugs being seized from a car.

This in turn then led to a nearby house being searched by officers and a quantity of controlled drugs, as well as cash, being uncovered inside.

Extensive inquiries have been carried out by Nottinghamshire Police teams since then to establish who could be involved in the drug enterprise.

As part of this, detectives have now charged a suspect with the supply of Class A drugs and possession of Class B drugs.

The 17-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared before Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Thursday (17 November).

He was remanded in custody and is next due to appear before the same court on 23 November 2022.

Detective Sergeant Lee Cattell, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This is a great example of our policing teams working together, with officers from our CID, knife crime team and forensic department all contributing at different stages of this investigation.

“We are pleased to have charged a suspect in connection with this incident, which should show our commitment as a force to rooting out any drug activity that takes place across Nottinghamshire.

“Drugs can have a devastating impact on communities, which is why we’re so committed to taking these illicit substances off our streets and away from where they can do harm.”
