Two Women Arrested After Greater Manchester Drugs Raid

Greater Manchester Police arrest two women in Thameside after amphetamines are discovered at a house in Dukinfield.

Police raided the house on Yew Tree Lane at 11.30am on Saturday 9th July and discovered a white powder, thought to be ampthetamine with a street value of several thousand pounds. Officers also found cash and weighing scales.

The women aged 38 and 62 were arrested on suspicion of the possession of drugs with intent to supply. They were bailed until the 5th November 2011 pending further enquiries.

Sergeant Stephen Lovatt, based at the Tameside East Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: "Drugs are dangerous and ruin lives so we are always pleased when we prevent illegal substances from making their way onto the streets.

"This work was done jointly by the NPT and the TAU and demonstrates the value of neighbourhood officers embedding themselves into the community, gathering intelligence and supporting the work of other units across the force."

Anyone with concerns about drugs in their community can contact officers on 0161 872 5050, find details for their NPT at or call the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
