Chief Superintendent Jon Rush, divisional commander at Bury said: “Today’s arrests are just the start of a new ongoing operation to tackle the sale and supply of drugs across our borough.
“Today’s strikes have taken weeks of planning and will have caused significant disruption to the users and suppliers of illegal drugs in Bury. With the public’s help, this work will continue.
“Let today be a warning to anyone involved in drug dealing in Bury that not only will you end up behind bars, but through Proceeds of Crime Act legislation, you will also end up out of pocket."
