Police from Operation Reacher and the Worksop Neighbourhood Team executed a Misuse of Drugs Act warrant at two properties on Edinburgh Walk yesterday (Thursday, June 3).

A spokesperson for West Bassetlaw Police said: “A large amount of cash and suspected Class A drugs were seized from the properties during the search.

Police carried out two search warrants on Edinburgh Walk.

"Two males aged 26 and 31 were arrested for possession of a controlled Class A drug with the intent to supply and are currently in police custody at this time.

They added: “Lads, your phones have been ringing off the hook since you were arrested and they were seized this afternoon.

"Probably wouldn't have chosen Backstreet Boys as a ringtone ourselves. Bit awkward.”
