A boy, aged 15, a man, aged 18, and a woman, aged 46 were all arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

Subsequent searches were also conducted on houses in Bulwell Forest and Melton Mowbray, where officers recovered a quantity of tablets, scales, mobile phones and laptops.

Detective Constable Dionne Love, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Thanks to these proactive efforts, officers quickly recovered a significant quantity of drugs and have taken them out of circulation.

“We are committed to our efforts to stop people who may be bringing drugs into Nottinghamshire and drug-related activity across the county. Drugs can often be indicative of wider serious organised criminality, as well as being illegal to possess themselves, and this is why we act so robustly when we find drugs or receive intelligence.

“Three people were arrested and our enquiries continue.

“Local teams are also working proactively to act on information from the community and offered a ‘tailored’ policing service based on what matters in their area. We would continue to urge anyone with concerns or information about drug-related activity in there area to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or speak to the local team directly.”
