The property, in Harlington Court in Denaby, was searched yesterday (Wednesday, September 25) under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

Detective Inspector Steve Smith said despite the fact the operation found no evidence of illegality on this occasion, he hoped the raid would ‘send a message’ that the force remained committed to tackling drug crime.
