Main article content
An excellent bit of proactive policing by Operation Reacher officers led to the arrests of two suspected drug offenders and seizure of suspected Class A drugs.
Members of Nottinghamshire Police’s dedicated Bassetlaw Operation Reacher team spotted a Ford Fiesta believed to be involved in the supply of illegal drugs between Harworth and Retford.
After stopping the car in Randall Way, Retford, officers detained and searched two occupants and searched the vehicle. Two bags of brown and white rocks were recovered.
A 46-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs following Monday's stop.
Inspector Hayley Crawford, District Commander for Bassetlaw, said: “My teams remain as committed as ever to taking illegal drugs off our streets and we will continue to take robust action against individuals suspected to be involved in supply of drugs in our communities.
“As I have repeatedly said, drug-related crime is a blight on our community. This type of criminality will not be tolerated, and we’ll keep acting on information received to bring about positive results and make our communities safer.”
