SIX people will appear in court today including a man from Kingsley Walk, Winsford, following a series of police raids.

The five men and one woman have been charged with conspiracy to supply class A drugs following a county-wide operation yesterday, Tuesday.

The 31-year-old man from Winsford was arrested after his home in Kingsley Walk was raided by police as part of the force's crackdown on drugs.

Properties in Runcorn, Widnes, Ellesmere Port and Warrington were also targeted for suspected drug offences.

The suspects were taken into custody to be questioned.

All six will appear at Warrington Magistrates’ Court today.

The operation follows a number of dawn raids two weeks ago where 13 people were arrested and charged in connection with conspiracy to supply class A drugs.

Detective Inspector Giles Pierce, who is in charge of the operation, said: “The action taken as part of Operation Impact is a result of an eight-month long investigation focusing on one organised crime gang and a number of individuals suspected of being involved in this type of crime.

“The strike phase is the result of months of hard work and evidence and intelligence gathering by a dedicated team of officers.

“It follows on from a number of warrants that were executed in the Merseyside area a few weeks ago and forms part of a wider operation.

“The action taken by officers reinforces Cheshire Constabulary’s commitment to proactively targeting, disrupting and dismantling those suspected of being involved in organised crime.”
