Officers carry out drugs raids in Crewe

Officers from Crewe have arrested eight people after carrying out drug raids.

The raids were carried out by officers from Crewe Local Policing Unit today, as part of Operation ImpACT.

They also targeted the Garson area of Merseyside.

Seven men and one woman were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.

Detective Inspector Giles Pierce said: “Todays warrants were carried out as part of a carefully co-ordinated operation which was the result of months of meticulous planning, and has involved officers from across the force.

“The corrosive effect that drug abuse and associated criminality has on our communities is well known, and we are committed to tackling the problem and targeting those involved.

“Operation ImpACT reinforces the commitment that Cheshire Police  have in targeting those people that undermine our communities and bring misery to residents through their involvement in organised crime and illegal drugs."
