A man has been arrested on suspicion of drugs offences after officers from the Mackworth and Morley Safer Neighbourhood Team executed a search warrant at a flat in Derby.                              

The team carried out a search today, Wednesday, November 16, under the Misuse of Drugs Act at an address in Heyworth Street on the Morley Estate, Derby and recovered a quantity what is believed to be cannabis and cannabis plants. 

The 47-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of the production of a Class B drug and possessing a controlled drug with intent to supply. 

Sergeant Mark Preston, from the team, said: “We took the action as a result of intelligence received from the community. This type of suspected behaviour is upsetting, often resulting in criminality and anti-social behaviour and so we will always act when we receive such information. 

“We have been visiting local properties and letting people know what we have been doing at the address to re-assure them that we have and will take positive action and would urge anyone with further such information to contact us.” 

Anyone with any information regarding this or similar issues should contact their local Safer Neighbourhood team on 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police or send them a message online by visiting the Contact Us section of our website here.
