Man in court over class A drug offences

A 25-year-old man has been charged with drug offences following a warrant in the Rotherham area.

Omar Ali, of Selwyn Street, Eastwood, appeared at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court yesterday (Thursday 25 January) charged with possession of heroin and crack cocaine with intent to supply.

He was remanded into custody ahead of an appearance at Sheffield Crown Court.

The charges followed a number of warrants carried out in the Eastwood area on Wednesday 24 January under the Misuse of Drugs Act. 

A second man and a woman, both from the Eastwood area, were also arrested following the warrants on suspicion of possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply.

They were both released under investigation.
