A suspected drug dealer was stopped and arrested after trying to avoid a pair of inquisitive police officers.
The officers were on patrol in Jubilee Way, Mansfield, at around 6.30pm on Wednesday when a car performed a U-turn ahead of them and drove away at speed.
After stopping a short distance later in Shirland Drive, a man was seen to leave the vehicle and walk away from officers.
He was detained shortly afterwards and found to be in possession of cannabis and a significant quantity of suspected cocaine.
A 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possessing class A drug with intent to supply, and possessing a class B drug.
He was also arrested on suspicion of stealing a motorbike in Mansfield Woodhouse in October last year.
Investigations continue while the suspect remains on police bail.
Sergeant Clint Gloyn, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:
“This was a good bit of work by officers who were unsurprisingly suspicious of the abrupt U-turn in front of them.
“Their suspicions were quickly confirmed and a quantity of illegal drugs were recovered.
“As an added bonus this suspect was also arrested on suspicion of another offence for which he was wanted.”
