Police cars were called out this afternoon January 24th to reports of suspected of drug dealing in the village.
The male ran off once he saw the police, he was caught a short time later after a short pursuit, and was then detained.
Police confirm that the man is now in a custodial unit for questioning.
Several people took to social media to congratulate and thank what the police had done, and in return GMP Trafford South gave back to them their appreciation.
Sale Moor is a lovely village, with people who really care about it, if you see anything suspicious ring the 101 number or use the online chat service on the GMP website this is a service for all non emergency situations.
