Date of alert:
Thursday, 2 March 2023
A huge hoard of poached deer skulls, antlers, fox tails, and weapons were uncovered alongside a quad bike after police raided a Worksop home.
Officers from the Bassetlaw neighbourhood policing team, Operation Reacher and the tactical support group joined forces to carry out the warrant at a property on Shrewsbury Road, Worksop.
After first finding cannabis, officers were then met with more than 15 deer skulls hidden outside in the garden – before discovering 13 fox tails, a quad bike, bags full of wire, a barrel of bleach and a knife in a camouflaged sheaf. A rifle and ammunition were also found in the raid on February 24.
