Knives and drugs were recovered in two Nottingham warrants this morning (Wednesday 28 April 2021).
Video footage released by Nottinghamshire Police shows officers from Operation Reacher and Neighbourhood Policing Teams from across the force enter a house in Palin Street.
Four knives, including two Rambo-style knives, were recovered from the property as well as amounts of cannabis.
A man was also arrested in connection with supplying class B drugs as part of police enquiries.
Knives and small amounts of drugs were also recovered following a warrant at a house Wimbourne Road, as the force continued its clampdown on criminal activity in the area.
Neighbourhood Policing Inspector Amy English, who works from Radford Road Police Station, has explained how the warrants form just one part of the ongoing action to tackle drug crime in the area.
Inspector English said: “Today’s action sends a clear message to drug dealers in Nottingham – we will not tolerate this behaviour on our streets.
“Local people have every right to feel safe in their homes. Drug crime can cause or be linked to violent offences and other crime types that have a massive impact on our communities.
“We work closely with local residents and have officers on the ground to gather intelligence and take action against those who are found to be harming the community.
“The recovery of several weapons as part of these searches is very positive and enquiries are ongoing into the drugs that were found at the houses.
“We are also pleased to have made an arrest as part of our enquiries. A subsequent search at another property nearby also led to the recovery of a large quantity of cash in connection with the warrants this morning.”
Inspector English has asked residents in Radford, Berridge, Lenton and Arboretum to continue to report their concerns to police.
Inspector English added: “We are committed to taking swift and appropriate action against any concerns the public have in the local area.
“We are here for you to make sure you feel safe and secure in the knowledge that police will act upon your concerns.
“If you have any concerns or spot suspicious activity in your local area, please report it to us as soon as possible either on 101 or in an emergency, 999.”
