The opening sentence reads: “Female uses Burngreave phone box … and orders taxi back to prison.”

In order to then explain the unusual incident, it continued: “Yesterday, after reports of a female using a phone box on Ellemsere Road to take drugs, members of the Burngreave Neighbourhood Team were quickly on scene to investigate.

“There wasn’t much by the way of a conversation going on in the phone box, more so a female smoking what was suspected to be class A drugs.

“After doing her best to pretend she was somebody she wasn’t, our officers eventually found out who she was.

“Unfortunately for her, she was circulated on our systems as being wanted on a recall to prison along with offences in the West Yorkshire area so was promptly arrested. All was not lost, she received a free ride to Shepcote Lane awaiting transportation back to prison.”

The post added that this was the team’s second arrest in the Burngreave area on the day.
