Five men aged between 19 and 28 and one woman in her 30s have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.
Within one of the properties, officers discovered a cocaine press in Edgeley which has been used to press bundles of powdered cocaine into blocks.
During the warrants officers also found a suspected illegal puppy farm and 14 suspected illegal breed dogs seized, they are all being cared for at specialist kennels.
DC Jon Greenslade of Challenger Team said: “This morning’s action is a prime example of the work we do to fight and prevent this type of crime.
“We understand the impact drug dealing has in our communities and we are committed to tackling this type of crime, especially because it makes people feel unsafe in the areas in which they live.
“Following the arrests this morning, our investigation into organised crime is still very much ongoing and we continue to work to fight serious and organised crime within our communities. I would like to thank the public for their ongoing support in sharing information and reporting any suspicious activity. This helps us successfully shatter established criminal networks and deprive them of their assets.
