OVER 50 vehicles were stopped and inspected and two men were arrested on Tuesday as part of Operation Voyager – a multi-agency crime crackdown.

During the operation, officers worked with partner agencies including VOSA, HMRC, BMBC, Immigration, Department of Working Pensions and Barnsley Warrants Officers.

Two men aged 30 and 38 from Barnsley were arrested from breach of a court order and failing to appear for a drugs offence.

Results from the operation included one vehicle being seized for environmental offences, one man reported for immigration offences, two vehicles reported for using red diesel, nine VOSA vehicle prohibitions, eight follow up DWP investigations and five fixed penalty notices for environmental offences.

Running the operation, Acting Sergeant Darrell Needham said: “We are pleased with the outcome of the operation and are committed to working with our partners to disrupt and deny criminals who are using the road network”.
