Twenty five drugs dealers have been jailed as part of Operation Challenger after 100 warrants were issued in October last year

A drugs gang is behind bars after one of the biggest crackdowns on organised crime in Manchester’s history.

Twenty five drugs dealers have been jailed as part of Operation Challenger after 100 warrants were issued in October last year.

Drugs couriers and dealers who sell drugs for crime groups to generate their wealth and power were targeted.

More than 50 tonnes of counterfeit goods worth £2m was recovered plus Class A and B drugs with a street value of £450,000.

Weapons including a baton, a stun gun, pepper spray, a ball bearing gun, two high powered air weapons and three live shotgun cartridges were also recovered and 12 vehicles including an Audi, Lexus and Subaru and a car stolen from a burglary, worth over £20,000 were seized.

Following the operation, a number other agencies were tipped off about possible criminal activity including private landlords and housing associations, HMRC, the Student Loans Company and the RSPCA.

Since October 25 drug dealers have been convicted with the last being jailed this week. In total they have been jailed for 67 years.

Chief Superintendent Rebekah Sutcliffe, said: “Challenger was set up to disrupt and dismantle the gangs that bring misery to the streets of Manchester, and to see so many members of these organised crime groups now behind bars is a fantastic result.

“This is all down to the tenacity and unwavering commitment of everyone involved to defeating these criminal gangs and I want to assure people across Manchester that this is just the beginning.

“Partner agencies across Greater Manchester will continue to target these networks and we will use every available resource in our arsenal to bring them crashing down.

“Our approach to dismantling these networks is to target them from every angle and make it impossible for them to operate. These gangs build their power from the bottom up and these drug dealers act as foot soldiers, peddling drugs to fund the illegal lifestyles of those higher up the tree. If you think about these gangs as buildings, these dealers are the foundations on which these gangs are built and if you take away the foundations, eventually the whole thing will come crashing down and that is our ultimate aim.

“By taking so many drug dealers and couriers off the streets, not only have we stopped the supply of drugs onto the streets of our communities, but we have also dried up a huge source of funds for the people at the top of these networks who mistakenly think they can enjoy a lavish lifestyle from drug money.

“Our message is clear – if you are involved in these crime groups in any way, whether it be a street dealer, a loan shark, a rogue landlord or those at the top of the tree, we will be coming for you.”
