Police seize drugs and cash after executing warrant in Carlton


Police have recovered cash and drugs after executing a warrant at an address in Carlton.

Officers carried out the early evening raid yesterday (October 23) on a property in Calverton Avenue.

During the raid police recovered a quantity of class B drugs, drug paraphernalia and a quantity of cash.

Most raids are carried out in the early hours of the morning but unusually this one took place at around 5pm.

“To anyone involved in supplying or producing drugs be warned: we don’t always do early morning wake up calls. We can turn up at any time.”

The warrant was executed by Gedling borough’s dedicated Operation Reacher team.

The Operation Reacher team was introduced to Gedling borough back in January of this year.

Nottinghamshire Police set up the dedicated team to combat gangs and criminals who made some people’s lives a real misery in Gedling borough.
