A man from Woodthorpe has appeared in court after police seized weapons and drugs from two addresses during raids.
Officers seized a handgun after raiding an address in Addington Court, Radcliffe-on-Trent, on August 15, 2023.
Drugs and a knuckleduster were also recovered from a property in Rose Close, St Ann’s, on November 22, 2023, as part of the investigation.
Mohammed Shaban Parvez, aged 39, of Littlegreen Road, Woodthorpe, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court last Thursday (23) charged with possession of a firearm, being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine and cocaine, and possession of an offensive weapon in a private place.
He is next due to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on December 21, 2023.
Detective Inspector Simon Harrison, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Tackling serious and organised crime is an absolute priority for us.
Drug supply and serious violence are often inextricably linked, as shown by the weapons recovered as part of this investigation.
“I want to reassure the people of Nottinghamshire that we will do everything in our power to protect the public, to ensure that those who commit weapon-enabled crime are dealt with quickly and appropriately, and we will continue our work to remove dangerous weapons and harmful drugs from our streets.”
