A 30-year-old woman was interviewed voluntarily and has since been released under investigation as enquiries continue. 

Det Insp Steve Smith.

Det Insp Steve Smith, who heads up the Fortify team, said: “Over the last few weeks you’ll see that we have really ramped up our efforts in Mexborough as we continue to eradicate organised crime in the area. 

“We’ve been carrying out warrants, stop and searches and working closely with key contacts within the community to direct our activity.

“Let me be clear – this activity is not a one-off effort, it will continue over the coming weeks and months to ensure that Mexborough is a safer and nicer place to be.

“Communities need to feel safe where they live and we are doing everything we can to ensure that happens and those involved in antisocial behaviour, drugs and firearm related crimes are removed from the streets and placed behind bars.”

Anyone with any information should call police on 101.
