Shortly before 9.10am on January 11, officers executed a warrant at an address on Stanton Street in Stretford.

Following a search of the property, they recovered 3.5kg of cocaine with an estimated street value of 350,000, and a taser which was disguised as a torch.

A 31-year-old man named as Mohammed Dhiya Ali has been charged with possession and intent to supply Class A drugs and remanded to appear at Manchester Magistrates Court on Jan 12.

Detective Inspector Paul Walker, of GMP’s Challenger operation said: “Excellent detective work has resulted in the warrant being executed and ensured this vast amount of drugs will not reach the streets of Manchester.

“As a result, officers have stopped these illegal Class A substances funding further crime in the community and taken a weapon out of potentially dangerous hands.

“We remain committed to tackling organised crime across the Greater Manchester area and will continue to clamp down on those who think they can get away with earning a living by breaking the law.”
