Five people have been arrested in Crewe, as part of the operation.

Officers executed a warrant at an address on Elizabeth Street this morning, where they seized cash and Class A drugs.

They also found the synthetic drug Spice at an address in West Street .

In Winsford, a 51-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply crack cocaine, after a raid on a property on Ford Court.

Officers also spent time at Macclesfield railway station yesterday (15 May), as part of the operation.
