A MAN and woman were arrested in Mexborough yesterday (Tuesday) after a "substantial amount of suspected class A drugs" and cash were found during a raid.

Police officers from Doncaster's Fortify Team, who tackle serious and organised crime in the area, recovered 400 wraps of suspected class A drugs, along with thousands of pounds of cash from a house in Hawthorne Crescent. 

A spokeswoman for South Yorkshire Police said a 30-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply and have been released under investigation. 

Det Insp Steve Smith, who leads the Fortify team, said they want people to know just how determined they are to continue their fight against criminals and suspected gang members in Mexborough. 

He said: "Carrying out warrants to disrupt suspected organised criminality is only one element of what we are doing here in Doncaster. That said, it is a key part. 

“We want people to know just how determined we are to continue this fight directly against criminals and suspected gang members in this area. If you are involved, we will identify you and could be knocking on your door soon. 

“Residents should not have to live in fear, or have concerns about organised crime where they live, and we are regularly working with the local community to address these issues and respond to their concerns."

Anyone with information about criminal activity is urged to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
