A PROBLEMATIC council house tenant was evicted last week after causing ‘no end of issues’ for local residents - and five weapons were recovered from his property.

Barnsley West Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) assisted Barnsley Council and Berneslai Homes with the eviction on Rebecca Row near the town centre.

A spokesperson for Barnsley West NPT said: “On Thursday March 10, our team assisted our colleagues from Barnsley Council and Berneslai Homes with the eviction.

“The male had caused no end of issues for local residents for some time.

“While in the property, the pictured items were recovered.

“The male has been dealt with for offences under the Offensive Weapons Act 2019.”

A spokesperson for Berneslai Homes added: “We cannot comment on individual cases.

“All issues of antisocial behaviour are dealt with in accordance with our antisocial behaviour policy and we continue to work in collaboration with partners and our communities to address these.”
