Two arrested after Southwell car stop leads to Class A drugs find

Officers made two arrests after stopping a car and finding drugs.

Intelligence led police to stop the car in Warrands Close, Southwell, and sniffer dog PD Sidney was brought in to help the search efforts.

A quantity of suspected class A drugs were recovered and officers also found a bag which also had suspected class A drugs inside.

A man, aged 28, and a woman, aged 36, were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A following the stop at 6.15pm on Tuesday (7 December 2021).

Sergeant Clint Gloyn, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a really great piece of work from our officers in their quick actions to proactively stop the car.

“A quantity of class A drugs are now out of circulation, which is really positive for communities. Drugs can have a significant impact and not only is it illegal to possess such substances in the first place, but it can also be linked to more serious, organised crime.

“We would continue to encourage people to report any information or concerns to us on 101 or through the local neighbourhood teams, who work hard day after day to listen to communities, gather information and act on this to ensure they are tackling the issues that matter most to the people they serve.”
