The find in Rawmarsh

FOUR people were arrested over the weekend after police officers found cannabis in Swinton and Rawmarsh. 

Officers from Rotherham North Neighbourhood Policing team were on proactive plain clothes patrols in Swinton as part of Operation Alligator. 

An officer said two men were arrested for possession with intent to supply and further enquires led to the arrest of a woman after the discovery of cannabis cultivation.

The team also came across another cannabis set-up in Rawmarsh the following day. One man was arrested for cultivation and other offences.
