Two men have been arrested after over £200,000 worth of drugs were discovered during a raid of a house in Stalybridge.
Officers from Greater Manchester Police Tameside's newly-formed Neighbourhood Task Force - formerly the Tameside District Tasking Team - carried out a drugs warrant on Stamford Drive early on Wednesday morning (14 July).
During the raid, which was part of a joint operation with the Yorkshire and Humber Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU), officers discovered over 300kg worth of what is suspected to be cannabis resin, with an estimated street value of more than £200,000.
A large quantity of cash was also seized.
Police say two men, aged 55 and 57 respectively, were arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class B drug with the intent to supply and being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.
Both men remain in custody for questioning.
Police Sergeant Scott Kerr, of GMP Tameside's Neighbourhood Task Force, said: "Today's operation shows the ongoing commitment, not just locally, but regionally and nationally, to rid the streets of illegal drugs and those who supply them.
"We will continue to act on the concerns of our communities and intelligence fed into GMP.
"Drugs play a major part in crimes inflicted on victims and me and my team will do what we can to reduce the impact it has on the streets of Tameside."
