The man ran after officers attempted to stop and search him, but he was successfully detained a short distance away.

On being searched, a large quantity of Class B drugs of different forms were found in the man’s bag.

The man was interviewed, charged with drug offences and remanded to appear at Sheffield Magistrates court this morning.

The Burngreave team said the arrest – the fifth in four days – was a testament to the 'hard work the team are putting into drug related crime in this area’.
