A 58-year-old man is being questioned on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class B drugs, possession of a noxious liquid, possession of a taser and burglary and theft offences after specialist police teams raided addresses in Amanda Road and Sandrock Road on Sunday April 25.

Cannabis, as well as another substance believed to be amphetamine, were recovered during the operation along with two stolen motorbikes, one of which had been stolen during a burglary in Doncaster in 2018 and a second during a burglary in Harworth in February 2021.

Detective Sergeant Dave Prest, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “I hope yesterday’s positive action gives members of the public confidence that the force is proactively investigating crimes to keep our communities safe.

“Intelligence is a key element of our investigations so I’d urge the public to keep reporting any suspicious activity to us. The better intelligence picture we can build, the more robust action we can take.
