A man has been charged after police uncover hundreds of wraps of cocaine and heroin and a suspected cannabis during raids across the borough. 

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) officers were on patrol in Bury on Tuesday, as part of Operation Revoke, a crackdown on organised crime and drug supply in the area.

A stop and search find of multiple wraps of crack and heroin ended up leading to another search, where hundreds more wraps were discovered as well as a small cannabis farm.

The team stopped a vehicle with two occupants on Brandlesholme Road and a search discovered 67 wraps of crack and heroin with an estimated value of £700.

House searches were then carried out, revealing a further 520 wraps of crack cocaine and heroin worth £5,200 as well as £1,000 in cash and designer watches.

At one address in Ramsbottom, a small cannabis farm was found with abstracted electricity and nine plants were recovered.

A 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs – heroin and crack cocaine - and money laundering.

Another man, aged 37, was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A, cultivation of cannabis, abstracting electricity and possession of offensive weapons in a private place.

Sammie Ahmed, 24, of Wharfside, Project Terrace, Bury, has now been charged with possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and heroin.

He was remanded in police custody to attend Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court today, Thursday, February 1.

Detective Sergeant Craig Murray, from GMP’s Revoke and Challenger teams, said: “Drugs cause an untold amount of harm in our community and to get hundreds of wraps of Class A drugs off the streets is an excellent result for the Revoke team.

“Revoke seized more than a million pounds worth of drugs last year and I am glad we are already building on that tally as we come towards the end of the first month of 2024."
