Hard drugs, two suspected stolen cars and around £2,000 in cash were discovered in a morning police raid.

Officers from Greater Manchester Police’s (GMP) Challenger Team raided the house on Grundy Street, Westhoughton, on the morning of Friday, February 16.

There they found the cash, around half a kilogram of suspected cocaine and two cars, VW T-CROSS and a BMW X2, which they believed had been stolen.

DI Lee Newburn, from GMP’s Challenger Team, said: “Operation Challenger is dedicated to taking drugs and harmful substances off the streets of Greater Manchester.

“This morning’s find means that we have now taken another chunk of suspected illicit drugs out of circulation and protected people from the dangers that they pose.

“We will continue tackling drugs, disrupting the people who sell them, and cracking down on all criminality that can arise from them.”

Both of the cars have been taken for further analysis, while a 31-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and handling stolen goods.
