Police day of action

Story by Sgt. Ben Hall.

Burngreave Neighbourhood Team plus traffic officers, colleagues from our tasking team and Police dog Dibley (pictured) started this month with a highly visible operation to tackle criminality.
During the day of action we made seven arrests, took large amounts of suspect Class A and B drugs off of the streets, seized three vehicles and a large knife and reported six traffic offences.

This was a pre-planned operation to target the issues that matter most to local people.

So we were out in force making a difference. It was a very successful day of action and more are planned in the future.

During the day officers:

  • Arrested two females on suspicion of breach of court orders both of whom were put before magistrates at Sheffield magistrates court
  • Made an arrest of a female aged 30 years who had failed to appear for sentencing for arson with intent to endanger life
  • Arrested two males both aged 21 years on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A and B drugs and possession of a bladed article in Abbeyfield park. One of these males was charged for possession with intent to supply and possession of a bladed article and remanded to appear at court.

Officers also executed a search warrant on Ellesmere Road North and found a suspected cannabis factory with approximately 150 plants.

Since our last update the team has made over 40 arrests targeting criminality in Burngreave.
