A 14th suspect has been charged by Nottinghamshire Police detectives investigating a drugs conspiracy which included a property in Coalville.

The forces's dedicated County Lines officers carried out a series of coordinated raids at addresses in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire in February and March this year.

They seized Class A and Class B drugs, cash, high-value items and equipment associated with the illegal drugs trade when executing warrants at homes in Coalville, Nottingham, Mansfield and Spalding, in Lincolnshire.

Thirteen suspects have previously appeared before magistrates and six have been remanded in custody.

Kamel Mantock, aged 26, of Wasnidge Walk, Nottingham, has now also been charged with conspiracy to supply cocaine.

He appeared before magistrates in Nottingham on Friday (May 10) and was remanded in custody.

Detective Inspector Luke Todd, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "This is a complex investigation and I'm pleased the hard work of our officers has led to a further suspect being placed before the courts."

The recent enforcement action comes as Nottinghamshire Police continues to tackle drug dealing between neighbouring counties.

County Lines is a term used to describe urban gangs supplying drugs to other parts of the UK using dedicated mobile phone lines.
