A house has been raided as officers crackdown on the illegal use and supply of drugs.
The Bassetlaw neighbourhood policing team and Operation Reacher teamed up last week (Wednesday 5 July) acting on intelligence to search an address believed to be involved in supplying drugs to the community.
Raiding the house in Hardwick Road East, Worksop, the teams discovered a large amount of cash, multiple mobile phones, drug paraphernalia, and suspected Class A drugs.
Two women, aged 25 and 30, and a 28-year-old man have since been interviewed on suspicion of being concerned in supply of drugs.
All three have been released under investigation while inquiries continue.
Inspector Hayley Crawford, District Commander of Bassetlaw, said: “After receiving intelligence of potential drug activity inside this address, we were able to act.
“Search warrants like the one carried out in this incident play a major role in allowing us to follow up these types of reports and ultimately help take more drugs away from our streets.
“Tackling drug-related crime in our community remains a strong priority for my team as we know that drug dealing and supplying can bring with it wider criminal activity.
“Our investigations are still continuing in relation to this search, but I want to ask anyone in the community who has any knowledge of drug-related to crime to come forward and speak to us.
“Your information could help us in our continued efforts to crackdown on those blighting our streets and communities with illegal drugs.”
