Cash, designer clothing and drugs found during police raid on Arnold home


A suspect has appeared in court after police found Class A drugs, high-value clothing and large amounts of cash during searches of three homes – including one in Arnold.

Police first raided a property in Pearmain Drive, St Ann’s, at around 6.20am on Thursday (23) after receiving intelligence about suspected drug activity at the address.

After gaining entry to the property, officers found a range of designer clothing and a large amount of cash.

Evidence found at the property led officers to search a further home, in Stakeford Court, Arnold, at around 10.40am on Thursday.

Here they discovered further high-value clothing as well as quantities of cash and cannabis, weighing scales and other drugs paraphernalia.

Officers then later searched a third property, in Potters Court, Beeston, where they discovered large quantities of suspected Class A drugs.

Desmond Buchanan, aged 35, of Potters Court, has been charged with being concerned in the supply of cocaine.

He appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Saturday (25) and will next appear at Nottingham Crown Court on December 22, 2023.

A 28-year-old woman who was found at the St Ann’s address and arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, possession of criminal property and possession of a Class B drug has been granted police bail while investigations continue.

A 40-year-old woman found at Stakeford Court was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs, possession of criminal property and possession with intent to supply Class B drugs and has since been bailed.

Officers also arrested and bailed a 16-year-old boy on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class B drugs and possessing criminal property after the Arnold search.

Detective Sergeant James Hirst, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We know the harmful impact that drugs have on people’s lives and on the wider community.

“That’s why we will continue to execute proactive warrants and act on intelligence gathered to disrupt suspected illegal activity.

“I would urge anyone who believes drugs are being produced or sold in their neighbourhood to get in touch. Your information could be a vital missing piece of the jigsaw which allows us to take positive action.”
