A man and woman were arrested today after drugs, cash and mobile phones were discovered in a police raid.

This came when officers from Greater Manchester Police’s Bolton West team raided a house on Leicester Avenue, Horwich on Thursday April 4.

There, officers say, they found a stash of Class B drugs along with the cash and mobile phones and arrested the man and woman at the scene.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesperson said: “Following receiving intelligence from the community, officers from the Bolton West team have applied to a magistrate for a warrant to search an address on Leicester Avenue, Horwich.
