Two men arrested following Dukinfield warrant

In the early hours of the morning, GMP Tameside’s Challenger Team executed a warrant at an address on Southfield Close in Dukinfield suspected to be linked to drugs supply.

Inside, police discovered over £100,000 worth of drugs, around £30,000 cash, and a Rolex watch.

A witness also said that it appeared two cars were confiscated.

Two men, aged 26, have been arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs. They remain in police custody for questioning.

 

Detective Constable Jake Orr from GMP Tameside Challenger said: “We have intelligence which suggests these individuals are senior members of an organised crime gang who are responsible for flooding the streets of Manchester with cocaine, heroin and cannabis.

“Drugs trade relies on exploitation and violence to operate, and we will continue to relentlessly pursue anyone involved, whilst ensuring those who are most vulnerable or at risk of exploitation get the support they need.

“Through proactive, community focused policing, we’ve been able to identify these individuals and execute these warrants today. Information from the public plays an incredibly important role in these warrants time and time again – please let us know if you have any concerns about drug activity in your local area.”
