A DAY of action in Barnsley yesterday led to a number of arrests.

Teams from across South Yorkshire supported Barnsley officers in Operation Duxford, executing warrants and arrests simultaneously.

Within a few hours of officers leaving Churchfield yesterday morning, six warrants were executed at addresses in Cudworth and the town centre in connection to Class A drugs and organised crime.

The warrants, led by community intelligence, were part of a district crackdown and disruption of organised crime.

Following a warrant at Everlin Street in Cudworth, a 20-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs with intent to supply after officers located a large holdall filled with what is believed to be Ketamine. Also in the property was dried cannabis, believed to be ready for sale.

Other arrests yesterday morning included a 30-year-old man on suspicion of money laundering, a 27-year-old man on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon, a 46-year-old man on suspicion of domestic abuse, a 43-year-old man for failing to appear and a 12-year-old boy on suspicion of robbery.

These arrests were all part of police efforts to disrupt organised crime and anti-social behaviour across the borough.

A spokesman said: “Our efforts as part of Operation Duxford are a reflection of our communities and the intelligence you provide.”
