Nottinghamshire Police’s knife crime team have arrested a man on suspicion of drug supply in Arnold.
Officers were on patrol in the Killisick estate of Arnold when they saw a car take a sudden turn without indicating which aroused their suspicions.
A short time later they spotted the car which had been parked with a man near to it who walked off along Lynton Gardens.
They quickly detained the man who smelt of cannabis and he was arrested on Tuesday afternoon (June 8, 2021).
When they searched him they found cash and when they checked the car they found bags of cannabis. Another bag of cannabis was found when they searched a footpath where the man had been walking.
The 30-year-old was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class B drug.
Neighbourhood Inspector Chris Pearson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This arrest and drug seizure was a result of some cracking work by our dedicated knife crime team.
“As our recent enforcement activity has shown, we are working relentlessly to target and disrupt offenders involved in the supply of drugs in the Gedling borough and we encourage members of the community to talk to us regarding any concerns or suspicions they may have regarding drugs-related criminality.
“Tackling and reducing drug-related crime remains a policing priority in Gedling and I’d like to reassure people that we will continue to take robust action against those responsible for committing such offences which could lead to them appearing in court to answer for their crimes.”
