Warrants were executed as part of a planned operation targeting the production and supply of illegal drugs across Greater Manchester.

Detective Inspector Kenny Blain of GMP’s Oldham District said: “We have a zero tolerance approach to drugs and we will continue to take action if there is any suspicion of offences being committed in Greater Manchester.
“Thanks to the swift action of officers a significant amount of drugs destined for our streets has been seized.
“Our most powerful weapon in the fight against drugs is the information we receive from the community- so if you suspect drugs are being cultivated or supplied in your area then get in touch police as soon as you can.”
