OFFICERS made a string of arrests during a crime crackdown day.

A warrant for stolen property was carried out in Grimethorpe on April 10 where amphetamine, cannabis resin and cannabis bush were found along with suspected stolen property.

A 44-year-old man was arrested and released on police bail, pending further enquiries.

A 24-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman were arrested and released on police bail after a second warrant was carried out in Grimethorpe and cannabis was found.

Barnsley Council removed almost one tonne off rubbish including two sofas, and 13 addresses were visited for children with poor school attendance.

Acting police sergeant Nick Redfearn, said: "This operation has been extremely successful and by working alongside Barnsley Council, South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue and Chevin Homes.

"We have been able to share intelligence, work together and start to address many of the concerns raised by residents of Grimethorpe, Brierley and Cudworth.

"There will be many more days of action planned for the year."

I am betting that the areas in question have high unemployment and low educational standards. I am guessing that there is high drug and drink use there as well and tons of domestic problems an poor school attendance. People wonder why Barnsley is going down hill. There's your answer.

Being that the areas mentioned are probably the most deprived areas of our town then its self explanatory isn't it?

Commenting for commenting's sake.

@ Stevo and Lyndon
Hi my internet trolls, talk about commenting for comments sake.....

The reason that ex mining villages such as Grimethorpe are poor is not because of lack of investment. There has been more investment in Grimethorpe than say Hoyland. It has more to do with a lack of willingness to move on from the pit era and to educate themselves or to improve where they live or how they live. This is not all about how much money you have.

This attitude is rife throughout Barnsley and until it is accepted as such it will not change. Education is key and in the report there are many parents who are not sending their kids to school.

Go on Stevo tell me how I am wrong in that?

grim why keep insisting that this is a problem in deprived areas i dare bet that this sort of behaviour is rife in so called well to do areas as well,the only difference is the the well to do kids have families who can afford to have it swept under the carpet.its got nothing to do with the not prepared to move on from the pit era its all to do with the wealthy having the means to cover up what they get up to
