Yankarran was arrested in St Marys Gardens, Newark, on 24 January 2019 after officers conducted a warrant at a property.

The investigation found that the house had been taken over as part of a county lines drug dealing operation and was being used as a hub for dealing class A drugs in the Newark area.

Yankarran was caught attempting to flush 30-40 wraps of heroin down the toilet. Officers also found a large quantity of cash, two mobile phones, a machete, a SIM card and a quantity of cannabis.

Inspector Heather Sutton, Neighbourhood Policing Inspector for Newark and Sherwood, said: “Drugs and drug dealing cause huge issues in communities and society as a whole. Class A drugs, like the one’s Yankarran was dealing, can have a big impact on someone’s health, even causing death in some circumstances. I’m pleased to see that these drugs have been taken off the streets and can no longer harm anyone.”
