Operation Medusa 

Officers have arrested a man in morning drugs raids in Trafford.

Following intelligence and work with partner agencies, officers were mobilised at the crack of dawn to force entry to two properties in the Partington area this morning (Friday 7 September).

Supported by officers from Challenger Manchester – a team dedicated to disrupting drug supply and organised crime – Trafford officers arrested a man aged 22 on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class B drugs. He remains in custody for questioning.

Cannabis – estimated to weigh around 5kg – was seized and a quantity of white powder, which is yet to be identified.

Phones and other items synonymous with drug supply were also seized and enquiries are ongoing.

Detective Sergeant John Seaton of GMP’s Trafford Borough, said: “Proactive action like this is absolutely necessary for us to disrupt those who supply drugs those who benefit from it.

“There is a clear hierarchy in drug supply, which can only be dismantled when we receive information so if you know about organised crime in your area, please take the time to call us.

“Drugs and the effects of drugs on society are incredibly detrimental so we need to take action and fast but can only do so with your help.”
