Detectives from the Serious Organised Crime Unit (SOCU) have this morning (Wednesday 31 October) made a number of arrests into the controlled supply of class A drugs.


A 31-year-old man from Altrincham and a 40-year-old man from Warrington have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply cocaine and are currently in custody assisting police with their enquiries.


Today’s arrests are part of our ongoing commitment and dedication to disrupt organised crime groups from supplying class A drugs.


Detective Chief Inspector Mike Evans, from the Serious Organised Crime Unit, said: “The arrests made this morning come as part of our continued fight against those intent on committing serious and organised crime within our communities.


“Our priority is to protect vulnerable people and help to ensure our communities are a safe place to live and we will not stop until all those involved in criminal activity realise Cheshire is a very difficult place to operate.


“We can’t do this on our own and need the public’s support in coming forward with any information to help disrupt organised crime. If you have any suspicions or information please call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
