Earlier this week, officers from Doncaster’s Fortify Team recovered suspected Class A drugs and an amount of cash, during a proactive stop and search under the Misuse of Drugs Act. 

On Wednesday 13 November, the team stopped a 31-year-old man on Main Street, Mexborough, for the purpose of a search, and recovered a black bag containing wraps of suspected Class A drugs. About £300 was also seized. 

The man has since been interviewed and released under investigation as enquiries continue. 

Fortify is the force’s response to tackling serious and organised crime and protecting vulnerable people. The team in Doncaster are working hard to disrupt and dismantle suspected organised crime groups in the area. 

Anyone with information or concerns about criminality in their area is asked to call 101 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
