Police investigation continues after discovery of cash, stolen vehicles and drugs in Sheffield lock-up
A police investigation is continuing today after the discovery of drugs, cash and vehicles hidden in a lock-up in Sheffield.
Six vehicles, which are believed to be stolen, were seized when officers forced their way into an industrial lock-up in the Wicker Arches railway viaduct in Sheffield on Monday.
Officers involved in the pre-planned raid also found cash and a ‘significant quantity’ of drugs, including Class A.
The cash and drugs are to be forensically examined.
Details of the makes and models of the vehicles found have not yet been disclosed but all are thought to have been stolen in incidents across the north of England.
The raid was planned in a crackdown on organised crime.
South Yorkshire Police said: “We are carrying out these types of raids across the city every week.
“Organised crime has an impact on all of us, we are committed to disrupting the activity of criminals in this city.”
