Nottinghamshire police have teamed up with local trading standards officers to tackle shops across the city selling “legal highs”.
THC, in Alfreton Road, and Solar Eclipse, in Ilkeston Road were raided last week in hope for trading standards and Nottinghamshire Police to seize so-called “legal highs”.
PC Tom Andrews, beat manager at Canning Circus police station, planned the operation.
“By doing these two premises we’ll hopefully have a massive knock-on. If we can stop people buying stuff there, hopefully it will put them off.”
Nottinghamshire police force is the first in the country to use new anti-social behaviour legislation to issue shops with notices ordering them not to sell the product, which can be as dangerous as class-A drugs.
