Officers arrested two men after executing search warrants this morning.

The development comes after two people had already been charged with firearms offences following an operation carried by Nottinghamshire Police’s Tactical Support Group in March.

Officers executed the proactive warrants at four addresses this morning which resulted in two men aged 40 and 21 being arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to possess a firearm and conspiracy to possess ammunition contrary to the Firearms Act.

This morning’s warrants at Bessell Lane in Stapleford, Exeter Road in Forest Fields, Allendale Avenue in Aspley and Romilay Close in Lenton Abbey follows another raid on 26 March 2021 where the firearms were located.

Danielle Corbett, 27, and Rob Zvikonyaukwa, 22, of Moorgreen Drive in Broxtowe were both previously charged with possession of firearms and possession of ammunition. They have been remanded in custody. Their next court appearance is 23 July 2021.

A man and a woman who were arrested following the warrant in March remain on police bail.

Detective Sergeant Nick Wood, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Firearms offences are incredibly serious and we will always look to take appropriate action against offenders.

“We rigorously investigate reports and will leave no stone unturned as we carry out our enquiries.
