Knife, baton and cannabis seized by police after car is searched close to Barnsley school
A knife, baton and cannabis were seized after a car was searched close to a Barnsley school.
Police officers spotted a car parked in the dark on an access road to a school on Dove Valley Way, Wombwell.
They found three men in their 20s in the vehicle and detected the smell of cannabis.
Officers also found an extendable baton and a knife.
One man was reported for possession of cannabis and another was reported for possession of an offensive weapon, possession of a pointed or bladed article and possessing cannabis.
South Yorkshire Police said: “We don’t think it is just cops that would find three lads sitting in the dark on an access road to a school suspicious, but we thought we would have a quick word.
“That quick word was made a bit longer when our diligent colleague caught a whiff of caribbean cabbage that was not very well concealed in the vehicle.”
