Main article content
Police in Stockport investigating the supply of class A and B drugs in the Edgeley area made three arrests in morning raids earlier today (Thursday 27 May).
Officers from GMP Stockport's district executed four warrants in Edgeley where an amount of class A and B drugs and £12,000 in cash were recovered and seized in evidence.
Three men - aged 18, 35, and 39 - were taken to custody for questioning, where they remain.
They are being held on suspicion of drugs offences.
The action comes as part of disruption activity to tackle drug supply in Stockport, believed to have links to organised crime.
Anyone with information is urged to contact police and assist with their ongoing enquiries.
Police Sergeant Gareth Davis, of GMP's Stockport district, said: "This morning's significant activity has seen us make three very important arrests in the disruption of class A and B drug dealing in Stockport, and highlights our endeavour to take illegal supply from our streets.
"We know there has been a lot of concern in the community about the prevalence of such criminal activity occurring in certain areas of the borough, and today's activity aims to drive a wedge between the activity and the supply that is fuelling that trade."
