GMP executed warrants at seven properties in the Stockport, Ardwick area of Greater Manchester, and in Disley as a part of a drug supply investigation. During the searches, a large quantity of suspected class A and B drugs, two suspected firearms and ammunition, high-value items including watches and handbags, and an estimated £30,000 to £40,000 in cash have been seized.
After the warrants across Greater Manchester, seven men who are aged between 28 and 62 were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply class A drugs. They are still in custody for questioning.
Superintendent Marcus Noden of GMP’s Stockport Division said: “Today’s action is the culmination of many months of meticulous and thorough investigative work and these arrests and seizures are testaments to the skill and dedication put in by all officers involved to help disrupt serious organised crime.”
“Our work will continue but we want to highlight that often our investigations are supported by intelligence passed to us by members of the public so I would encourage anyone with information that could assist on enquiries to get in touch with police.”
