A suspected drug dealer has appeared in court after police found wraps of crack cocaine during a car stop.
The vehicle was pulled over in Nottingham Road, Hucknall, at around 11pm on Saturday (6 January).
Officers discovered the cocaine during searches of a suspect who was inside the car and he was arrested.
Evidence gained during the stop then led to officers searching a property in Woodstock Street where they found further Class A drugs and drug paraphernalia.
Twenty-one-year-old Anderson Teixeira, of North Sherwood Street, Nottingham, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Monday (8 January) charged with possession with intent to supply a Class A drug.
He was remanded in custody until his next appearance at Nottingham Crown Court on 5 February.
Sergeant Karam Kaur, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:
“It is always a good result when we can take Class A drugs off the streets and destroy them.
“The officers involved have carried out exemplary searches and I’m pleased this suspect has been placed before the courts.”
