Nottinghamshire Police officers continued their proactive investigation work on Operation Alaska this weekend, charging a man with drink driving, arresting a man with possession of a large quantity of drugs and seizing a vehicle with no insurance.

The local neighbourhood team and response officers are working on drugs intelligence-led and enforcement operations, being undertaken to deal with drugs and criminality in the area.

This weekend saw plain clothed officers on patrol gathering intelligence in the West Bridgford area, as well as officers conducting stop searches. 

A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cannabis after he was stop searched following a call from residents that saw suspicious activity. He has since been released under investigation. 

Meanwhile a 20-year-old motorcyclist was arrested and charged after failing to stop of officers on the A453 Remembrance Way on Friday night.

Officers spotted the rider at around 10.55pm and he eventually stopped after a short pursuit. 

The motorcyclist was charged with failing to stop for officers, driving in a public place without due care and attention and possession of cannabis. 

He is due to appear on 23 July 2020 at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court.

Operational Support officers also seized a delivery vehicle in the Compton Acres area as the driver didn't have business insurance. 

Neighbourhood Inspector Craig Berry said: "Overall it was a productive weekend.

"Drugs can have a devastating impact on people’s lives and on the community as a whole.

“I’d like to reassure local residents that we are determined to keep our communities safe. We won’t hesitate to take robust action to target and disrupt suspected drug-related criminality in our neighbourhoods.

“We are fully committed to working with our local communities to act on intelligence and it can be that information provided to us by local people, about suspicious activity in their areas, that can be the final piece in the puzzle leading to action being taken.

“Information provided to us by local communities is vital so if you see anything suspicious in your area please report it to us by calling Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency. Alternatively you can provide information to Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111.”

Note: The original version of this press release stated that Marlowe had been charged with drink driving. This was incorrect and has been amended to state he was charged with driving in a public place without due care and attention.

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
