Two arrested after searches of Nottingham addresses reveal cannabis plants

A quantity of drugs have been taken off the Nottinghamshire streets and two people have been arrested after successful warrants by police.

Neighbourhood Policing officers and Operation Reacher teams in Broxtowe and Gedling joined forces to search two addresses in Bilborough and Netherfield on Thursday (6 May 2021).

A number of cannabis plants were recovered from the property in St Michael’s Avenue, as well as suspected class A drugs being seized from a house in Nether Pasture.

A 29-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cannabis, meanwhile a 31-year old woman was detained on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

Neighbourhood Policing Inspector for City West, Gordon Fenwick, said: “A quantity of drugs have now been taken out of circulation and this is a really positive outcome.

“This is the result of our proactive response to intelligence we receive from the local community, and as local officers we are committed to this approach. We encourage anyone with concerns or information about criminal activity to get in touch. It is absolutely a priority for us to listen and respond to what local people are telling us matters to them.

“Reports of drugs supply and production are something we look to tackle head on. Not only is this illegal in itself, but it can also be a sign of, or lead to, wider criminal activity, and it is because of this that we take such a proactive response towards this type of crime.

“A man and a women remain in custody and our investigations are ongoing. We would ask anyone with information or concerns to report this through 101 or by speaking to your local neighbourhood policing team.”
