A man was arrested after a dawn raid at a house in Westhoughton.

Neighbourhood officers with GMP Bolton West Team say they found drugs at the house in Gorsey Hey this morning and an arrest  was made.

A spokesperson from the neighbourhood team said: "Officers from the Bolton West and Bolton North Neighbourhood Teams executed a drugs warrant at an address on Gorsey Hey in Westhoughton this morning.

"A quantity of drugs were recovered from the address and a 38-year-old male was arrested." 

This comes after the police cracked down on drug dealing in Bolton earlier this year with Operation Vulcan

They dismantled a Cheetham Hill-based drug operation, in the process raiding properties in Bolton, as well as others in Cheetham Hill, Cheshire and Slough, Berkshire.
