A man was arrested by Nottinghamshire Police officers after they executed a Misuse of Drugs Act warrant in Eastwood.

Nathan Cope, 28, of Nottingham Road, Eastwood, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, March 30, charged with possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, specifically heroin and cocaine, and acquiring, using or possessing criminal property.

He was remanded in custody to next appear at Nottingham Crown Court on April 27.

Officers recovered a large quantity of Class A drugs, thought to be worth around £7,000, after executing a warrant at an address in Nottingham Road last month.

A quantity of cash and several mobile phones were among other items seized during the joint operation carried out by the Broxtowe North Neighbourhood Policing Team.

Police Sergeant Alison Bryan, neighbourhood policing sergeant for Broxtowe North, said: “This successful warrant is just the latest part of our wider and ongoing proactive enforcement action to tackle and disrupt drug crime in our communities.

“It’s also a clear demonstration that we won’t hesitate to act on community concerns and intelligence and that we will pursue individuals suspected to be involved in drug crime and who cause misery for law-abiding residents.

“Nottinghamshire Police will always investigate reports of suspected drug crime and take appropriate robust action against those believed to be committing such offences.

“Our officers work closely with local communities to help gather intelligence and build up information that could lead to more action being taken. That’s why it’s crucial that if you see any suspicious activity in your area, you report it to Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. In an emergency, dial 999.”
