Success After Thurnscoe Manhunt

Friday October 19 2012

A MAN was arrested yesterday as part of a shooting investigation after a manhunt that started in Thurnscoe.

Officers flocked to the village on Thursday (October 18) to gather intelligence on the local man who was wanted in connection with a shooting.

It was part of an ongoing investigation into the shooting of Tyrone Woodhead in Wath-upon-Dearne on Thursday, 20 September.

A spokesman said: "South Yorkshire Police were continuing their enquiries in Thurnscoe and the wider Barnsley area.

"A 29-year-old Thurnscoe man was arrested last night in connection with the shooting after he was located in Southport, Merseyside."

At the end of September, armed response officers, the police helicopter and police cars were searching the streets in Thurnscoe after getting intelligence that two suspects wanted in connection with the investigation were in the village.

Many residents reported that police had been into local shops, schools and homes as part of the manhunt.

At that time, a 22-year-old local man was arrested in connection with the incident and officers contnued the search for the second.

People that are making stories up about the men they have caught need to all get a grip because all your doing is listing to gossip and adding your own bit on.

Sorry to be a little critical 123but I think I can use your posting to help youngsters around the town.

The use of "your" in your posting should have been you're (short for you are) . Your means "belonging to you"

Hope you don't mind
