Three people were arrested and a large amount of Class A drugs seized when police carried out coordinated raids on three homes.
Officers from teams including Operation Reacher and the Tactical Support Group executed warrants at addresses in Bulwell, Radford and Aspley yesterday (Thursday 6 July).
Three city raids lead to arrests
As well as cocaine and heroin, officers found firearm ammunition, weapons, cash and drug equipment during searches of the properties.
When officers knocked the door down at a house in Severn Street, Bulwell, at 8am they found large quantities of Class A drugs hidden inside a safe.
A 19-year-old man who was inside the property was arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply.
Ammunition, a knife, multiple mobile phones, scales and other drug paraphernalia were also seized from the address.
Radford and Aspley
Simultaneous raids were also carried out at properties in Grafton Court, Radford, and Eltham Close, Aspley.
At Grafton Court, a suspect was detained at the address when officers arrived and was found to have a knife in his possession and a rucksack full of Class A drugs, scales and mobile phones.
A 23-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply and possession of a knife.
Officers also arrested a 36-year-old man on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs and possession of criminal property after he was detained when a further warrant was executed in Eltham Close.
Detective Inspector Kayne Rukas, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:
“These warrants are a significant result in our ongoing battle against the organised crime gangs which blight communities in our city and county. It is always good news when we can take illegal drugs off the street and destroy them.
“We have also arrested three people who remain in custody but our investigation remains ongoing.”
