Neighbourhood Inspector Chris Pearson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Proactive warrants like this one are just one small part of the preventative work that we are doing day-in and day-out to tackle illegal drug supply in our communities.

“As we’ve continued to show with our enforcement activity, we are listening to what people are telling us about the issues most of concern to them and we have taken positive action to address those concerns.“Information from local people is key to our ongoing work so I’d urge the public to keep reporting to us because the more information we get, the better intelligence picture we can build and the more robust action we can take.

“We really value information supplied by the public and will always act on it, where appropriate, to make our communities safer. 

“If you have any information regarding any criminal issues in your area, don’t hesitate to call us on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. In an emergency call 999.”
