Two Doncaster men have been jailed for a total of seven and a half years for drugs offences, after police found more than £13,500 of crack cocaine and heroin at a Hexthorpe property.

Daniel Greaves, 28, of Old Hexthorpe, and James Luke, 28, of Salisbury Road, Hexthorpe, appeared at Sheffield Crown Court today to be sentenced after pleading guilty at an earlier court hearing in September.

Greaves and Luke were pulled over by police on Trafford Way, Doncaster, on Friday, June 6 last year.

As they stopped the vehicle, Luke was seen throwing a small bag out of the car window which was later found to contain wraps of crack cocaine and heroin.

A subsequent search of a property in Hexthorpe uncovered more than £13,500 of crack cocaine and heroin along with £6,000 in cash.

Both men were charged the following day with possession with intent to supply a Class A drug and possession of criminal property. They both pleaded guilty and have each been sentenced to three years and nine months in prison.

DC Dan Lighton investigating said: “I’m pleased these two are now behind bars and the drugs they were in possession of have been removed from the streets.

“Drugs cause untold damage and devastation to people’s lives and to their families. I hope the result today sends out a clear message that we will not tolerate the actions of anyone who chooses to be involved in this type of criminality.”
