Drugs, ammunition and stolen goods were seized by police in a 24-hour crackdown on crime in Sheffield.

Police officers recovered the items after raiding homes in Southey Green, Parson Cross and Shirecliffe.

A haul of stolen goods including mobile phones, laptops and iPads were found, along with cannabis, heroin, crack cocaine, plus cash and a stash of postage stamps were found during Operation Ketchup.

Inspector Glen Suttenwood said: “This was another great operation for the Sheffield pro-active team, who continue their efforts to seek out criminal behaviour and drive it down.

“We had officers from a number of departments supporting these raids, including the dogs section, the Safer Neighbourhood Team, CID and uniformed patrol officers, all working together to crack down on illegal activity.

“We have made a number of arrests and are already planning further operations across Sheffield.

“We want to reassure the public that we are dedicated to reducing crime and making this city an even safer place to work and live.”

A 46-year-old woman and 22-year-old man have been arrested.
