18 arrested in Class A drugs raid

Greater Manchester police have seized a significant amount of Class A drugs and have closed down a marijuana farm after executing a series of warrants in Salford, 18 arrests have been made in total.

Last week more than 200 officers executed warrants at 22 addresses across Eccles and Pendleton as part of the Project Gulf project. 15 men and 3 women have been arrested after police discovered crack cocaine, heroin, a stolen motorcycle, cocaine and cash.

The raids are a result of an intelligence-led operation conducted over a number of months into offences such as supplying Class A drugs and other criminality.

Superintendent Mark Kenny, of the Salford division, has paid homage to the role of residents by stating “We would not have been able to carry out these warrants had it not been for members of the public coming to us with information and intelligence, and that is very pleasing”.
