A BARNSLEY police sergeant has thanked residents for intelligence which led to a £100,000 drug bust earlier this week.

The Barnsley West Neighbourhood Policing Team executed a warrant on Monday morning at a property on Shaw Lane - and cannabis plants were found in ‘every room’.

Sgt Dan Goodinson told the Chronicle it was thanks to the local community that they were able to take such a large quantity of drugs off the street.

He said: “There was more than £100,000 of drugs but it does happen quite regularly - when you’ve got every room packed with cannabis, that’s what it’s often worth.

“We’re working with the local community and showing them when they do report something, we’re going to do something about it - it’s a circle of trust.”
