Items seized included drugs paraphernalia and documents.
Shortly after the warrant, police arrested a man involved in an unrelated incident. The man had been wanted by police and was seen by a partner agency in the Victoria Park area.
Prompt attendance by the Response Team and Central Neighbourhood Officers ensured there was no escape for the wanted male.
The 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assaulting an emergency worker, 12 counts of theft and recall to prison.
He was remanded in custody to attend Tameside Magistrates Court this morning (Wednesday 27 September 2023).
Inspector John Picton of the Stockport Central Neighbourhood Team said: “Unfortunately an officer was assaulted by the offender as he attempted to evade arrest.
