South Yorkshire Police have charged two people with drug and weapons offences after a drugs raid in the Batemoor area of Sheffield last week. 

Yasher Haji Ferhadi, 22, and Lauren Murphy, 26, both of Whinacre Place were arrested under suspicion of possession with intent to supply heroin and cocaine and possession of an offensive weapon.

The pair were charged with the offences on Thursday 17 March after Police discovered substantial quantities of class A drugs on the Batemoor street the previous day. 

Both appeared at Sheffield Magistrates Court on Friday 18 March and have been remanded in custody until Tuesday 19 April when they will appear at Sheffield Crown Court. 

Detective Sergeant James Dyson, from the Operation Fortify team, said: “Drugs are not welcome in our communities and I am pleased that as a result of this activity, we have seized a large quantity of class A drugs that were otherwise destined for our streets.

“If you have any information or concerns relating to drugs in your area, please report it.”
