Cameron Gilles, 30, and Leoni Bott, 29, both of New Row, have been charged with possession with intent to supply class A and class B drugs.

They will appear at Nottingham Crown Court on March 25.

This proactive, intelligence led raid was carried out by members of the Ashfield Operation Reacher Team.

Inspector Mark Dickson, district commander for Ashfield, said: “This was a significant operation that has led to a large amount of drugs being taken off the streets of Nottinghamshire.

“Serious and organised crime will not be tolerated in any form here in Nottinghamshire and I hope this raid sends out a clear message to people involved in this type of activity.

“We are as committed as ever to taking drugs off our streets and my message to anyone involved in the supply of illegal drugs is clear: we’re coming for you.”
