Officers unearthed the kitchen knife, a number of dealer bags containing spice and some packets of cannabis when they carried out a search at Ellesmere Green in Burngreave.

The search was conducted after residents had voiced concerns about anti-social behaviour on the green, where they complained people were often seen using the drug spice around the seating area.

Members of the Burngreave neighbourhood policing team have stepped up patrols of the area in response to people’s concerns, and the items which they unearthed on Wednesday have been seized, with enquiries underway to locate the owner.
