Charged with drugs supply

A 31-year-old man from Hyde is among three people in Greater Manchester who have been charged in connection with the supply of drugs.

Daniel Sanders, of Ash Tree Road, has been charged with conspiracy to supply a class A controlled drug - cocaine.

Meanwhile, Reece Bradbury, 27, of Pulman Gorve, Worsley, has been charged with conspiracy to supply a class A controlled drug - cocaine, conspiracy to supply a class B controlled drug - cannabis and possession of a controlled drug of class B - cannabis.

Christopher Winder, 42, of Melville Road, Cadishead, has been charged with conspiracy to supply a class A controlled drug - cocaine and conspiracy to possess a firearm with intent to endanger life.

The charges come after detectives from GMP’s Serious and Organised Crime Group executed five warrants at properties in Hyde, Cadishead, Worsley and Whitefield last Thursday as part of Operation Goodwin.

Women facing assault charges

Two women have been charged in connection with a stabbing in Dukinfield.

Katie Sayers, 36, and Kirsty Sullivan, 28, both of Astley Street in Dukinfield, have each been charged with two counts of section 18 assault - wounding with intent.

The charges are in relation to an incident on Tuesday afternoon last week in Astley Street, following reports of a fight.

Emergency services were called to the scene and enquiries established two people - a man and a woman - had been stabbed inside a property on the street.

They required hospital treatment but have since been released.

Disqualified from driving

Tameside magistrates have fined Anthony Bligh £120 and banned him from the road for 12 months.

The 42-year-old, of Berkeley Street,  Ashton, admitted an offence of being over the drink drive limit on December 7 last year.

The court heard he was stopped on Manchester Road, Ashton, and found to have 50 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. 

The legal limit is 35.

The court fined him a further £60 for not having any insurance cover at the time.

Magistrates ordered him to pay court costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £34. 

The driving disqualification can be reduced by three months if a designated driving course is successfully completed.

Driver banned from the road

Chloe Gartside, 23, of Illingworth Avenue, Stalybridge, has been disqualified from driving for 18 months by Tameside magistrates.

She admitted a charge of failing to provide a specimen of breath when required to do so after being stopped in Hyde on December 10 last year.

Magistrates fined her £276 for the offence plus ordered her to pay £85 court costs and a £34 victim surcharge.

The driving disqualification can be reduced by 18 weeks if a driving course is successfully completed.

Twelve weeks behind bars

Tameside magistrates have jailed Darius King for breaking previous court orders.

The 24-year-old, of Harbour Farm Road, Hyde, had initially denied the offence relating to an incident in Manchester last November.

However, he later changed his plea to one of guilty.

Magistrates said he had displayed a flagrant disregard for court orders and therefore had no option but to impose a custodial sentence. They jailed him for a total of 12 weeks.

He must also pay £200 court costs and a £128 victim surcharge.

More than twice over the limit

A Droylsden driver has lost her licence for more than three years for an offence of drink driving.

Amy Haslam, 29, of Mossbank Avenue, admitted a charge of being over the drink drive limit on December 8 last year.

Tameside magistrates heard she was stopped on Market Street, Droylsden, and found to have 89 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, exceeding the legal limit of 35.

The court ordered her to carry out 40 hours unpaid work and disqualified her from driving for three years and three months.

She must pay £85 court costs and a £95 victim surcharge.

The driving disqualification can be reduced by 39 weeks if a course is successfully completed.

She was issued with a Rehabilitation Activity Requirement as part of a community order, meaning she must attend appointments when required to do so by an officer.

Three-year ban

Van driver Sam Daley has been banned from the road for three years for being over the drug drive limit.

Appearing at Stockport magistrates, the 27-year-old of Grove Street, Ashton, admitted the offence.

Magistrates heard he had been stopped behind the wheel of a Ford Transit on Lingard Lane in Stockport on June 12 last year and found to be over the legal drug drive limit.

He was fined £600 and must also pay £85 court costs and a victim surcharge of £85.

Out with a knife

Darren Nelson, 47, of Armadale Road, Dukinfield, has been fined £80 by Tameside magistrates for having a kitchen knife in public.

He admitted the offence relating to an incident in November last year.

Magistrates ordered him to pay £85 court costs and a £95 victim surcharge and issued him with a community order in the shape of a Rehabilitation Activity Requirement, meaning he must comply with the requirements of an officer.

Double assault

A Dukinfield woman has been fined £50 by Tameside magistrates for assaulting two police constables in the execution of their duties.

Sally Grinyer, 47, of Wellington Terrace, admitted both offences relating to an incident on November 9 last year. She must also pay £85 court costs and a £95 victim surcharge.

She was issued with a Rehabilitation Activity Requirement.

Duo arrested

Two men were arrested after a suspected stolen vehicle was pursued and stopped by police.

Officers from Greater Manchester Police’s Road Policing Unit spotted a van driving ‘erratically’ on Boyds Walk, Dukinfield, at around 11.15pm last Thursday.

After a short pursuit the two occupants were arrested on Cavendish Street, Ashton.

Driving ban

Jack Coleman failed to provide a specimen of breath when required to do so, Tameside magistrates heard.

The offence cost the Droylsden man, 27, of Scott Road, his driving licence for 18 months plus a fine of £200.

Magistrates also ordered him to pay £85 court costs and a victim surcharge of £34.

He admitted the offence.

The driving disqualification can be reduced by 18 weeks if a course is successfully completed.

Threat of jail

Tameside magistrates have handed Eric Daniels a suspended jail sentence for a charge of assault.

The 42-year-old, of St Mary’s Road, Newton, Hyde, pleaded guilty to the offence relating to an incident on December 12 last year.

He was handed a 12 weeks jail sentence, suspended for 12 months.

He must also carry out 100 hours unpaid work and pay £85 court costs plus a victim surcharge of £128.

He was issued with a Rehabilitation Activity Requirement, meaning he must attend appointments as required by an officer.
