Man arrested for carrying a knife and drugs on Sheffield street

Knife and drug possession and failure to appear at a previous court hearing has led to a Sheffield man being remanded in custody.

Thirty-nine year old Leon Waite was arrested last week on Clun Street, Burngreave, after he was suspected of carrying a knife and cannabis.

Police allege Wait also failed to appear at court hearing for possessing a knife, and failed to comply with a drugs intervention programme.
