Police have seized cocaine and around £80,000 in cash from a house in Broxtowe Estate.

A 35-year old man and 32-year old woman were arrested at the search of the property on Westleigh Road on June 14.

Officers found large quantities of what is believed to be cocaine in various locations after entering the house.

The raid was part of an ongoing investigation into the supply of illegal drugs.

The cash was also found hidden across the house in bags and boxes and generally rolled or clipped together.

Multiple mobile phones were seized as well as electronic scales.

Detective Inspector Jamie Hill, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This operation was planned in response to community intelligence and I hope will send a very clear message to people who are involved with the illegal trade in drugs – we may know more about your activities than you think and we could be paying you a visit in the near future.

“If you are concerned about drug-related crime in your community please call us on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
