Spice drug crackdown in Manchester
A man and woman have been sentenced after a crackdown on Spice in Manchester.
Nicholas Dodd, 29, of Oldham pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of spice. He also pleaded guilty to the possession of cannabis at an earlier hearing.
Kady Dodd, 27, also of Oldham pleaded guilty to allowing her premises to be used for the supply of spice and possession of cannabis, at an earlier hearing.
On 27 June 2017, they were sentenced at Manchester Crown Court, Crown Square. Dodd received 36 months in prison and Kady Dodd received 14 weeks in prison suspended for 12 months.
On 26 April 2017, officers from GMP’s Challenger Manchester and City of Manchester teams executed a warrant at the property on Hillside Avenue. This was part of a crackdown on Spice dealing in Manchester city centre.
Both were arrested at the property and remanded into custody.
Detective Inspector Paul Walker of Challenger Manchester said: “Today’s sentencing demonstrates our absolute commitment to tackling the issue of Spice in Greater Manchester.
“We will continue to work with the people of Greater Manchester and our partners in the NHS”.
GMP will “rid our streets of drugs as well as to support those who find themselves as users and addicts.
“If you deal Spice, or any other drugs, you won’t get away with it – you will be dealt with and could end up behind bars”.
