Police seized 10kg of cannabis.

Around 10kg of cannabis was recovered from the property, along with £5,000 in cash and a variety of weapons, including a taser disguised as a mobile phone.

DS Chris Beaumont said: “A man aged 22 and a woman aged 19 were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cannabis.

“They have been released under investigation while forensic enquiries take place.

"Thanks to this warrant, drugs that were ready to be sold were removed from the streets ahead of the summer bank holiday weekend.

"We hope this sends a very clear message to those individuals involved in the production and supply of drugs that we can – and will – come knocking on your door at any time.

"Disrupting activity like this is a vital part of tackling serious and organised crime in Doncaster and we are working hard to keep up the pressure on these groups.”
