Crackdown on supply of drugs in Trafford

Arrests were made as part of a crackdown on the supply of Class A drugs in Trafford

On Friday 9 November 2018, officers executed a warrant at a bar off Chelford Road in Sale. The co-ordinated action was part of Programme Challenger - Greater Manchester's partnership approach to tackling serious and organised crime, working with local partners including Trafford Council.

A large quantity of suspected cocaine has been recovered and two men aged 27 and 28 were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.

Det. Sgt. Adam Ayling from the Trafford Division said:

"We are committed to systematically rooting out and dismantling groups and individuals that seek to profit from supplying drugs."

"Narcotics ruin lives. Proceeds from the sale of drugs are used to further organised crime which blights communities.

"We now have two people in custody as a result of the hard work of our dedicated officers, together with the support of our partners.

"I want to thank our local communities, as without them working with us and reporting crime, we wouldn't be able to carry out successful operations such as this.

"This raid demonstrates our commitment to eradicating drugs from our streets."
