The team said they also encouraged a 31-year-old male from Daybrook to hand himself in to the Bridewell after missing court related to an alleged drugs possession.

A police spokesman said: “The Operation Reacher have been hard at it this week rounding up those that have failed to attend court.

“When a person doesn’t attend court when told to do so a warrant is issued by the courts and it is the job of the Police to locate and arrest them so they can be put before the courts.

“This work helps brings cases to a conclusion faster and allows victims closure.”
