Three arrested after drug busts on Sheffield estates
Three men have been arrested after a series of drug busts on Sheffield estates.
Three raids were executed simultaneously across the Woodhouse and Stadbroke areas of Sheffield this morning, as officers continue their work to disrupt drugs supply in the city.
Three addresses, two on Skelton Road and one on Smelter Wood Court, were raided after officers received intelligence that drugs were being stored and sold from the premises.
Operating under the Misuse of Drugs Act, officers found a cannabis farm in each of the three addresses, with 60 plants recovered altogether.
Three men from Sheffield, aged 25, 35 and 54, have been arrested on suspicion of the cultivation of cannabis and have since been released under investigation.
A similar warrant was also executed on the Jordanthorpe estate this morning which found another cannabis farm along with 140 plants on Hazlebarrow Crescent.
