South Yorkshire Police said he initially refused to co-operate with officers but when his fingerprints were taken he was identified as a suspect in another case involving the supply of drugs.

Sergeant Adam Wood said officers had believed he had '˜made his escape out of the country'.

The man was later released without charge due to insufficient evidence.
