A Doncaster man is now serving over three years behind bars after CID officers discovered an array of drugs, including cannabis and heroin in his home.

Early one morning last September, officers carried out a warrant at the home of Levi Oberg, on Schofield Street, Mexborough, after intelligence had been gathered to suggest that there were drugs inside the property.

On arrival Oberg, 23, tried to flee the address, initially running from officers into the back garden but he was quickly detained, as PC Mark Roostan, the investigating officer explains.

“When we arrived at the address, Oberg tried to run from officers and also threw a wallet over into the neighbouring garden, which was later found to have £3,000 in.

“We then carried out a thorough search of the house, and in addition to the cash we found quantities of heroin, crack cocaine, spice and cannabis. A number of scales and mobile phones were also seized.”

A woman Shannon Neylan, 22, of Schofield Street Mexborough, was also arrested inside the house. The pair were later charged in relation to drugs offences and appeared before Sheffield Crown Court for sentencing on Friday 26 October. They both entered guilty pleas to possession with intent to supply and being concerned in the supply of drugs at an earlier hearing.

Oberg was jailed for three years and four months while Neylan received a 12-month community order and a rehabilitation requirement.

PC Roostan added: “Tackling the supply and distribution of drugs across Doncaster and in Mexborough in particular is a priority for our CID teams.

“We are regularly carrying out warrants and other proactive operations to disrupt such criminality in order to make the area a better and much safer place to live.

“If you ever have concerns about drugs, or other criminality, in your area, please speak to us either while we’re out on patrol, via 101 or through Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
