Officers in Salford have seized a large amount of suspected class B drugs and an estimated £200,000 in cash after the three warrants in the city yesterday morning. Two men were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class B drugs.
Police found an estimated a half kilo of suspected amphetamine and at least £200,000’s worth of cash, concealed in a locked safe and a ‘Cops and Robbers’ gambling machine. Officers still appeal to anyone with concerns or information about the organised crime activity.
Detective Sergeant Daniel Worthington, of GMP’s Salford district, said: “Our efforts to tackle organised criminality in Salford is really stepping up after the positive results we gained since the start of our targeted disruption activity last year, and today’s action is another example of this.”
“This is another substantial seizure of what we believe to be class B drugs and hundreds of thousands of pounds of cash accrued through illicit activity.”
