Yesterday morning, on Friday 27 October 2023, GMP officers from Wigan’s Challenger team, GMP’s Tactical Aid Unit (TAU) and Wigan Neighbourhood Team came together to execute warrants at two properties in Worsley Mesnes.
The operation was conducted in response to critical intelligence regarding county lines activity within the area.
As a result of these coordinated efforts, two individuals were taken into custody.
An 18-year-old male was arrested on suspicion of possession of class A drugs and the theft of a motor vehicle. The 24-year-old male was arrested on suspicion of possession of class A drugs with intent to supply.
Both arrested individuals have been interviewed and subsequently bailed pending further investigation.
