Three arrested after Nottingham drugs raid carried out

Three suspects have been arrested after officers teamed up as part of ongoing efforts to disrupt criminal activity.

Neighbourhood officers from Bestwood teamed up with the City North Operation Reacher team and executed a Misuse of Drugs Act warrant.

At around 9 am on 17 January, officers armed with a search warrant began searching an address in Walgrave Walk, Bestwood, acting on intelligence around drug-related activity.

Officers searching the house quickly found and seized some suspected Class A drugs.

Three men, aged 30, 40, and 40, were arrested at the scene on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs and possession with intent to supply.

All three have been interviewed and released under investigation while inquiries continue.

Bestwood Sergeant Katie Taylor said: “Yesterday’s warrant resulted in us disrupting drug activity but also removing Class A drugs from our streets.

“I hope this sends a strong message to those involved in the drug-related activity in the Bestwood area that we are aware and taking action to make sure people in the community are kept safe.

“It also shows how passionate we are about improving the Bestwood area for everyone in the community and making sure they feel safe and listened to.

“Any drugs found during warrants like this one, no matter how much, means we’re taking them off of our streets and tackling the issue head-on but most importantly we know that drug activity brings with it other crime that causes misery for residents in the community.

“I want to ask anyone who has any information on drug-related activity to get in touch with us by either speaking to a patrolling officer or calling 101. Your information could be the final piece of evidence we need in an investigation or help us take drugs off the streets.

“If you do have any information please call 101, in an emergency 999, or if you wish to remain anonymous you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
