Two people, including a teenage boy, have been arrested after supplies of heroin and crack cocaine were discovered during a house raid in Nottingham.
The drugs, which were found in a bathroom bin, were seized by police alongside a knife and cash in Phoenix Close, The Meadows.
Officers from the city south Operation Reacher team have arrested a 14-year-old boy and 38-year-old man on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs – both have been released under investigation.
The raid took place on Saturday, January 29 with forensic work still taking place.
Inspector Karl Thomas, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “I’d like to commend officers from our Operation Reacher team for ensuring a quantity of dangerous Class A drugs have been taken off our streets.
“It is absolutely essential that we continue to act on any intelligence we receive and take immediate, front-foot action against anyone who is selling drugs in our communities.
“Drugs activity is often linked to wider serious organised criminality and can result in vulnerable people being preyed upon and exploited for the gain of others, so carrying out warrants such as this are an extremely important tool to help us maintain the upper hand against these criminals.”
There have been a number of successful raids in recent weeks, with the police cracking down on drug-related activity.
On Monday, Nottinghamshire Police announced that they had seized around 30 cannabis plants during a house raid on top of the 100 cannabis plants they seized on Sunday, January 23.
