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.”
