Three arrests after drugs raid in Carlton


Police have arrested three people after drugs and cash were seized when a warrant was executed in Carlton

Class A and B drugs were discovered when a firearms warrant was carried out at a property in Oakdale Road just before 9am today (August 3).

The suspects, aged 22, 27 and 26, were arrested on suspicion of drug supply and possession of criminal property offences. They remain in custody.

Police said the warrant was carried out by the Gedling Operation Reacher Team and Neighbourhood Support Unit in response to ‘community concerns about drug use and supply in the local area’.

The operation was part of the ongoing drugs operation ‘Operation Thistle’, which aims to tackle the issue of drug supply when raised by the local community.

Neighbourhood Policing Inspector Chris Pearson said: “There has been a lot of police activity in the area this morning as we executed this warrant.

“The supply of drugs and the harm they can cause to vulnerable people is a priority for our officers and we remain committed to working with our partners to target offenders and disrupt criminal activity.

“As today’s warrant shows we will take proactive action in relation to anyone allegedly involved in the selling or dealing of controlled substances. The use of drugs causes immense personal cost and damage to lives which will not be tolerated.

“I would like to thank the local community for their support – operations such as the one today can’t happen without it.”It’s essential that our local communities continue to tell us about the issues in their areas – whether this relates to suspected drug offences, or other related criminal activity.

“If you have concerns about drug-related activity in your area I’d urge you to come forward and talk to us in confidence.“Anyone with information should call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111
