FIVE people have been arrested following a drugs bust in Doncaster.

Officers on a routine patrol stopped a man who smelt of cannabis and who was acting suspiciously outside a house in Bennetthorpe. After his arrest for possessing drugs officers raided the home he had just come out from.

Police recovered 20 bags believed to have contained around £500 worth of cannabis

Two men and two women were arrested in suspicion of possessing drugs with intent to supply and bailed pending further inquiries.

PC Martyn Micklethwaite, from the Urban Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) said: “Drugs play a big part in criminal activity often with crimes being committed to fund habits.

“The SNT are committed to removing drugs from the streets and will always listen to the public’s concerns. Anyone found committing offences will be dealt with appropriately.”
