Suspected drug raid in Eastwood

POLICE refused to confirm if a house raided in Eastwood was the location of a cannabis farm.

An eyewitness told the Advertiser they had seen officers leaving a property with what appeared to be cannabis.

But South Yorkshire Police would neither confirm or deny that the raid, on York Road last Thursday morning, was in connection with a drugs raid.

A spokesperson said: “The police activity around St Ann's Road was in connection to an ongoing investigation.”

A police van and car were parked outside and, according to the eyewitness, officers were seen “raiding the property and bringing cannabis out”.

The raid is the latest in a long line of police incidents in Eastwood.

Police found cannabis in three houses in Eastwood in raids just a few days apart last month.

Weeks later, in the run-up to Christmas, drugs police discovered a house on Milton Street had been knocked through to next door to provide a bigger space for growing cannabis.

Residents and business owners in Eastwood have also regularly complained about regular power cuts which have been linked to cannabis production.
