A man and a woman were also arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance with intent to supply and have been released under investigation.

Ali appeared at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court the following day charged with possession of heroin and crack cocaine with intent to supply.

He did not enter a plea and was remanded in custody.
