Police arrested four suspected drug dealers and seized thousands of pounds worth of Class A and B drugs during a coordinated raid.
Officers from the City South Operation Reacher team executed the warrant at a home in Colliery Close, The Meadows, around 2.45pm on Thursday 4 January 2024.
After forcing entry to the property simultaneously, via the front and the back doors, they detained four men in the kitchen and recovered large quantities of suspected crack cocaine, heroin, and cannabis.
They also seized a quantity of cash, mobile phones, scales, and other drug paraphernalia found inside the property.
The suspects – three aged 35 and another aged 39, were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A and B drugs.
Detective Sergeant Toni Smithurst, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a great bit of coordinated police work involving multiple officers working together to achieve a positive result.
“Our investigations and warrants, such as this one, are aimed at those who profit from selling drugs to vulnerable people. Our enforcement activity also shows the force’s commitment to keeping our communities safe by tackling serious and organised crime.
“It is always positive when we can seize and destroy drugs and disrupt their onward supply.
“The supply of drugs can have a devastating impact on our neighbourhoods. Anyone involved in this type of criminality can expect to be pursued and brought before the courts.
“I want to encourage anyone who believes criminal activity is taking place in their area or ever notices anything suspicious to please get in touch with us and report it - your information can sometimes be the final piece of evidence we need in an investigation."
Anyone with any information about drug dealing should call Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
