Dramatic Arrest of Half-Naked Suspected Drug Dealer in Manchester Suburb Unfolds, Leading to Major Police Operation Crackdown

In a dramatic turn of events, police in Manchester apprehended a half-naked suspected drug dealer after a high-speed chase through back gardens in the suburb of Openshaw.

The suspect, clad only in a red dressing gown and white trainers, was captured on video climbing over garden fences in an attempt to evade arrest.

Crackdown on Drug Dealing Leads to Major Police Operation

The arrest was part of a larger undercover operation conducted by Greater Manchester Police to combat drug dealing in Manchester city center.

The operation, involving 300 officers, resulted in the arrest of 22 men and two women aged 18 to 45 in connection with the supply of class A drugs.

Additionally, nearly £10,000 in cash, along with mobile phones and bags of illegal substances, were seized.

Collaborative Efforts to Combat Drug Trafficking

Greater Manchester Police collaborated with the North West Regional Organized Crime Unit for six months to target the illegal drug supply in Manchester city center.

Working closely with local residents and stakeholders, the operation aimed to address the escalating issue of drug dealing in the area.

Police Response and Deterrent Message

Detective Sergeant Matt Donnelly from Operation Vulcan emphasized the significant impact of the drugs trade on communities and the importance of proactive law enforcement measures.

The arrests made during the operation dismantled several county lines and local drug networks, sending a clear message to criminals that criminal activity will not be tolerated in the city.

International Arrest and Continued Efforts

The Manchester operation coincided with the arrest of a British fugitive, Paul Brown, in Spain. Brown, wanted since 2020 for drug-related offenses in Manchester, was apprehended in Benidorm after evading authorities for years.

The arrest underscores the ongoing efforts of law enforcement agencies to target individuals involved in drug trafficking across borders.
