Police have seized a bladed weapon in Arnold as part of an operation aimed at reducing crime across the borough.
Nottinghamshire Police’s Knife Crime Team seized the bladed weapon during a proactive work as part of Operation Sceptre.
The knife crime week of action includes a series of targeted operations and activities such as weapons sweeps in public areas.
During their patrols in the the area yesterday (Wednesday, March 25), the team stopped a vehicle in the Lidl car park in Mansfield Road and recovered a bladed garden hoe (pictured).
A 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of a bladed article in connection with the incident.
The team also gave advice to a number of people on staying home, in line with government guidance on the coronavirus, to help save lives – after seeing some people milling about.
