On Thursday 16 June 2016, police executed a number of warrants across the Greater Manchester area, resulting in a large amount of cannabis being seized.

The cannabis, with an estimated street value of £80,000, was among a number of other items seized in the warrants including a number of rings seized from a house on Edzell Walk, Openshaw.

Nine men have since been charged and one woman has been arrested in connection with the warrants.

Police, who believe the rings may be stolen property, have issued photographs in an attempt to identify the owners.

“I’m appealing to anyone who recognises the rings or has any information about them to contact police so we can return them to their owners.

A number of people have been charged as part of an on-going investigation into cannabis production.

Daniel Aimson, (born 25/6/81) of Ullswater Road, Astley, Richard Grady, (born 13/8/86) of Park Road, Hindley, Steven Hindley, (born 14/5/9) of Maesgwyn, Rhyl, North Wales, Michael Hutton, (born 17/4/64) of Crossley Court, Ancoats, Christopher King, (born 12/9/68) of Bowling Green Court, Longwood, Huddersfield, Hussain Mozahem (born 29/1/92) of Findlay Street, Leigh, George Parkinson (born7/7/87ý) of Ullswater Street, Leigh, Jonathan Vaiders, (born 2/2/89), of Jaffrey Street, Leigh, John Wallace, (born 25/4/72ý) of  Stansbury Walk, Manchester, were all charged with conspiracy to produce cannabis.

Daniel Aimson, a serving GMP officer, was also charged with misconduct in a public office.

Michael Hutton was also charged with possession of amphetamine with intent to supply and Jonathan Vaiders was also charged with possession of cocaine with intent to supply.

All nine are due to appear before Manchester City Magistrates Court on Thursday 20 October 2016.
