Two men arrested after two drug raids in Bingham and Lady Bay
Two men have been arrested after officers raided two properties today (Monday).
The co-ordinated raids discovered various items including mobile phones, knives and drug-related paraphernalia.
The Rushcliffe Reacher team gathered on Chaplefield Grove, Bingham, and Gertrude Road, Lady Bay, after police followed up on intelligence about suspected drug activity.
A number of officers gained entry to the house on Gertrude Road by smashing a windowpane on the front door before ramming it open and storming inside.
Footage also shows police vehicles parked along the residential street in Lady Bay, before acting upon the warrant and making an arrest.
A 31-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A and B drugs and possession of offensive weapons.
A further 34-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class B drugs.
Rushcliffe Reacher Sergeant James Ross, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “When we receive intelligence about the supply of drugs we will investigate and we will take action.
“Drug dealing and related crime causes considerable harm to our communities and will not be tolerated anywhere in Nottinghamshire.
“We were acting on information from the public about incidents in this area and the Rushcliffe Reacher team will always endeavour to take complaints like that extremely seriously.
“So if you are concerned about drug-related crime where you live please do not hesitate to tell us about your concerns by calling us on 101 or contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
