Two arrested and Class A drugs recovered after car stopped

Two people were arrested and suspected class A drugs were recovered after a car was spotted driving erratically in a Nottinghamshire town.

Officers pulled the car over in Outram Street, Sutton-in-Ashfield, at around 6.30pm yesterday evening (Wednesday 2 February 2022).

A subsequent search of the vehicle and its occupants uncovered a significant quantity of what is believed to be crack cocaine.

Cannabis, cash and mobile phones were also found in the car, which was discovered to be travelling on false plates.

Two people, a 24-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman, were detained.

The man was arrested on suspicion of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply, possession of a class b drug, driving without a licence and driving without insurance.

The woman was arrested on suspicion of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply.

Sergeant Paul Peatfield, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a great result that came about when officers from our County Knife Crime Team spotted a car being driven erratically.

“After pulling the car over, our suspicions were quickly confirmed and a significant quantity of illegal drugs were taken off the streets.

“I hope this latest stop sends a clear message that if vehicles are being used to commit crime there is a high chance they will be spotted and they will be searched.”
