‘Stolen cars’ and Class A drugs found in industrial lockup

Police sliced open the front of an industrial unit to recover Class A drugs and six suspected stolen vehicles in The Wicker near Sheffield city centre.

A team of officers from Sheffield Proactive CID executed a warrant on Monday, March 15, after receiving intelligence about organised criminal activity at the premises.

As well as a significant quantity of Class A, and other controlled drugs, the team seized cash which was hidden inside the premises, during the morning raid.

Detective Constable Mike Jenkins said: “We are carrying out these types of raids on addresses across the city every week, based on intelligence and information coming from our communities. I hope that people see this and realise that working with us does make a difference.

“Whilst no-one was at the premises at the time, we are now carrying out significant enquiries to identify a number of people we want to speak to.

“Organised crime has an impact on all of us, we are committed to disrupting the activity of criminals in this city.”
