Police raid house on Kimbolton Avenue in Lenton
The Kimbo curse strikes again
A police raid was reportedly carried out at a house on Kimbolton Avenue yesterday afternoon.
A van and multiple police officers arrived on the scene at Kimbolton Avenue before knocking down the door. In video footage of the incident the door appears to have been left off its hinges as a police officer is seen holding it.
In a statement acquired by The The Tab Notts, Nottinghamshire Police say the raid was executed with a warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act and a small quantity of what are believed to be class A drugs were found.
Residents on the road reported seeing smashed windows and the door to the property left off its hinges. They say the front windows to the house had previously been blacked out with posters, preventing pedestrians seeing in, but witnesses reported that during the raid police tore down everything that was blocking the windows.
The incident drew many residents out of their houses and, for most, it was their first time getting a look inside.
