Three men arrested in early morning drug raids

Morning raids saw three people arrested as part of a crackdown on drugs in Manchester.

Today, Thursday 9 November 2017, police executed warrants at six addresses across the Moss Side and Hulme areas of Manchester. 

The warrants, which were supported by immigration services, were executed as part of Operation Malham targeting the supply of drugs in South Manchester. 

Three men, aged 38, 44 and 47, were arrested on suspicion of supplying Class A drugs. They all remain in custody for questioning. 

Among the items seized were a quantity of crack cocaine, heroin and cash.

Detective Chief Inspector Paul Walker, of GMP’s City of Manchester team, said: "Over the past six months we have had a dedicated team of detectives trawling through community concerns and information about drug supply in the Moss Side and Hulme areas. 

“Today, we have made three arrests after executing warrants across these areas and I would like to thank the community for working with us, as well as partners, and making this possible. 

“Please continue to report anything suspicious to help us stop the criminals benefiting from drug supply and organised crime. 

“Drugs will never be tolerated by us and we are determined to bring those responsible to justice.” 

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
