CASE NOTES: Following searches of all three properties, suspected class A and B drugs were recovered, along with over £3000 in cash, designer clothing and jewellery, phones and vehicles: In July 2020, GMP alongside nearly every law enforcement agency across the UK came together as part of the National Crime Agency led ‘Operation Venetic’, focused on the takedown of ‘Encrochat’ – a sophisticated encrypted communications service used by OCG’s…………GMP launched a series of intricate investigations bringing together 16 teams of officers from across all ten districts of Greater Manchester. Codenamed ‘Operation Foam’, the force wide operation has been in constant action for the past 15 months.

Detective Sergeant Alex Brown of GMP’s Oldham Challenger Team, said: “Today’s action is the culmination of months of intricate investigative work and is another positive result for the team in our endeavour to disrupt and dismantle the distribution and trade of drugs across our region: Thankfully today we have been able to remove what is suspected to be a large quantity of drugs from our community, and although we have three men in custody our searches and investigation will continue this morning and we will ensure all criminal assets are seized: An inordinate amount of work goes on behind the scenes to investigate the distribution of drugs and I hope today’s arrests and seizures send a stark warning that GMP will do all in its power to pursue offenders and ensure no one benefits from ill-gotten gains and the sale of drugs: Often these investigations rely on intelligence passed to police by members of the public can often play a big part in investigations. If you have information that could aid our investigations into the trade of drugs across Greater Manchester then please get in touch with police.”

Following a search of the van, weapons including machetes and hammers were recovered, as well as balaclavas. The van was confirmed as being stolen during a burglary in the Bolton area on Monday 6 September

Following enquiries it is also believed that the males had been involved in an aggravated burglary that had been committed in Prestwich earlier that evening (28/09): During the burglary, a group of males wearing balaclavas and wielding hammers and knives had forced entry to a property. During the burglary a teenage boy was assaulted and the males fled the scene in a car belonging to the owner of the property.

Chief Inspector Jamie Collins of GMP’s Bury district, said: “We understand the distressing impact burglaries can have on our communities and no one should ever feel unsafe or at risk in their own home: These arrests are a fantastic result and highlight the importance and positive impact of teams across multiple districts working together to pursue offenders. This is also another positive step forward in our commitment across Bury to target burglary hotspots and offenders across the district: Our enquiries will remain ongoing but I hope these arrests continue to send a strong message that we will do all we can to ensure those responsible for such offences will be identified and located. As always we encourage the communities within Bury to support our work on burglary and review their home security, particularly around vehicle keys. I’d also urge you to remain vigilante and report any information that could assist us in tackling burglary so we can act on this immediately”

(GRT MANCHESTER) Minshull Street Crown Court Report: Three males who pulled a woman from her car at knifepoint whilst her two year old child was in the back have been jailed #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.20: On Thursday 17 June, the victim – a man in his 20s – advertised a pair of Louis Vuitton sunglasses and a bag for sale over social media: That day he was contacted by a profile in response to his advert and a price of £400 was agreed for the items. The victim passed his postcode over to the profile and agreed that he would be home by 3pm that day…..

#AceDailyNews reports that on Friday 17 September Brandon Smith, 21, of Wildclough, Hyde alongside Kaydn Jones, 18, of Rosk Street, Salford and Tyrese Chisholm, 18, of Heathcote Road Manchester were jailed for their involvement in an armed carjacking.

Feeling as those the profile was messing him around the victim asked them to leave it until later in the day. Just before 7pm the victim was messaged by the profile informing him ‘they’ were at the top of his road waiting for him.

The victim’s girlfriend and 2-year-old son were waiting at the bottom of the road in a car as they were due to all go out after the items had been sold. Unable to see the men, the victim was called by a new number and told they were waiting on Clumber Road for him.

Noticing the male – Kaydn Jones – the victim climbed into his partner’s car and told her to drive up the road towards him. As the victim got out of the car to speak to Jones,

Chisholm ran up behind him and demanded he hand over all his possessions before lunging him at with a knife.

The victim also noticed Smith behind him holding a knife and forcing him to run away from the car to get the men away from his partner. As he ran he noticed the men had turned back towards the car before Chisholm demanded the woman get out of the car before holding a knife to her throat and grabbing her coat to pull her from the driver’s seat.

The woman was just able to free her 2 year-old son from the back of the car before all three men fled the scene in the vehicle. Multiple items including two phones, designer clothes and the Louis Vuitton bag were stolen along with the vehicle.

Following extensive CCTV enquiries, detectives were able to identify and track the movements of Smith, Jones and Chisholm linking them to the robbery.

Today (Friday 17 September) at Minshull Street Crown Court, Brandon Smith was jailed for 3 years and 3 months after pleading guilty to two counts of robbery.

Kaydn Jones was jailed for 3 years and 6 months after pleading guilty to two counts of robbery and possession of a knife and Tyrese Chisholm was jailed for 4 years after pleading guilty to two counts of robbery, one count of driving while disqualified, one count of using a vehicle without third party insurance and one count of threatening a person with a blade in a public place.

Detective Sergeant Helen Fletcher of GMP’s Operation Valiant said: “This was a terrifying ordeal for the victim and his partner as well as her young child who had to witness his mother being dragged at knifepoint from a car: “Thankfully no one sustained any injuries during the robbery but the end result could have been far worse. I’m glad we’ve been able to secure a conviction for all three males and I’m sure they’ll have plenty of time to consider their actions behind bars: “I hope this sends a stark warning to anyone who thinks they can commit any type of violent robbery and get away with it without any consequences. GMP will do all in its power to ensure you’re identified, located and face justice.”

(GRT Manchester) GM Police Report: At around 9.00am on Wednesday morning (11 August 2021) officers executed a warrant at a warehouse on Bradshawgate in Bolton town centre uncovering huge cannabis farm #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.12: Initial searches of the building uncovered eleven rooms of cannabis plants, as well as evidence that people were living there such as beds, clothes and food.

#AceDailyNews reports that police officers in Bolton have uncovered a huge cannabis farm with a value of one million pounds in Wednesday morning raid at a warehouse….

Inspector Helen Chadwick of GMPs District Intelligence Unit said: “Locating a cannabis farm of this scale is a fantastic result for our officers who work hard to crack down on drug related crime in the area: Our Bolton Action Team (BAT) who led on this morning’s raid, focuses on the execution of warrants and tasks reacting to intelligence led crime trends and district threats: They were assisted by the Bolton Partnership Team, which is a police led multi-agency task force which coordinates partner agencies to reduce demand on front line policing and increase efficiency moving forward: The building is in the process of being made safe by an electrician due to the large amount of wiring surrounding the plants and once this has been done the plants will then be removed for analysis before being destroyed: This was a very well equipped, large cannabis farm likely involving a number of people at different levels of the drug supply chain: No arrests have yet been made but enquiries are ongoing and evidence is being gathered from the scene to try and track down those responsible for the farm: We hope that this find significantly disrupts the supply of cannabis in the area, ultimately making our local communities safer: In order to keep on disrupting this type of crime we do need the public to report any information they may have to us and so I would urge anyone who has information about this cannabis farm, or anyone connected to it, to please contact us so we can bring these people to justice.”

(GRT MANCHESTER) GM Police Economic & Cyber Crime Unit Report: Millions of pounds invested in a fake savings and trading service lies waiting to be claimed by rightful owners across the world, after scammers passed through the city and were detected by officers #AceNewsDesk report

#AceDailyNews reports that millions are waiting to be claimed by rightful owners as GMP rumble international crypto-currency scam and a sum of $22.25 million (equivalent to just over £16 million) was seized by specialist officers from Greater Manchester Police’s Economic Crime Unit, after intelligence led to the discovery of USB sticks containing huge amounts of Ethereum, the second largest Crypto currency after BitCoin.

Victims based in the UK, United States, Europe, China, Australia and Hong Kong had deposited money, including life savings, into what they thought was an online savings and trading service using Binance Smart Chain, which stores and records transactions made in crypto-currency confirming their movement and value.

The scammers operating the service waited until a significant amount of money had been deposited, before shutting down their website and transferring the funds into their own accounts. Unfortunately for them, the scammers did not disappear without trace.

Specialist officers received intelligence that those running the scheme had been in Manchester for a limited time and tracked them down, recovering an encrypted USB stick containing $9.5 million of stolen Ethereum.

A 23-year-old male and a 25-year-old female were arrested for fraud and money laundering offences. They have since been released under investigation.

They found a further $12.7million a few days later after locating a Cryptograph safety deposit box, effectively an online safe, and the code to access it.

The sum totalled 90% of the cryptocurrency stolen, and work has now begun on re-uniting it with the rightful owners, some of whom are still unknown and located across the world. 

Crypto-currency saving and trading services are becoming increasingly popular, with projects offering incentives to people to invest significant amounts of money, offering tokens that can then be sold for a profit.

But increasingly savvy criminals are finding ways to exploit the trend, in ways even the most experienced users can’t anticipate.

One UK resident, who wishes to remain anonymous, fell victim to the scam despite working in the industry and using cryptocurrency for years. 

He lost hundreds of thousands worth ofcryptocurrency , but will now get 90% his fund back following the recovery. If funds remain unclaimed, he will receive the full 100%.

He said: “Crypto-assets often aren’t understood across the world, and therefore are not taken seriously because the technology is so new, and it can be complicated.

“I’m an experienced blockchain professional, I’d done all the research with friends who work in programming development to make sure it was safe. The hack really surprised us at first.

“GMP acting so quickly reassured me that the UK is moving into the future and changing with the times, where many countries aren’t. I had a significant amount of money in the project, I lost a lot. It’s such a relief to get most of it back.”

Greater Manchester Police has recently increased funding for its Economic and Cyber Crime units to tackle growing cases in digital and online fraud.

Both departments have received the go-ahead to boost staffing levels, with the Asset Detention and Recovery Unit receiving over £1.5 million pounds of funding for extra staff, including a Detective Inspector, a Detective Sergeant, Investigation Support Officers and Financial Investigators.

Detective Chief Inspector Joe Harrop of Greater Manchester Police’s Economic Crime Unit said: “Our lives are increasingly moving online or onto our phones, and currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum are often seen as the future when it comes to money and trading: With that comes a new type of crime and we’re seeing a rise in opportunist criminals looking to exploit these trends as well as any gaps in the technology that can be manipulated: It’s vital that we as a force adapt to what is an emerging type of crime, and demonstrate that there will be repercussions, regardless of the platform this fraudulent activity takes place on: Organised crime is getting increasingly sophisticated in faking websites and services. Most of us can say we’ve got a text message from a seemingly known brand or bank, and it being harder than ever to tell if it’s the real deal: This latest case shows the huge sums we’re dealing with, and the reach these organised outfits can now achieve – a whole world is potentially vulnerable to this kind of exploitation, as shown in this case: We urge anyone involved these platforms to use extreme caution, and know that there are still significant vulnerabilities and risks that could put their savings at risk.”

Detective Sergeant Pete Nuttall of GMP’s Cyber Crime team offers the following advice when using cryptocurrency and trading services: “Do your research into any investments before putting funds in. These savings and trading services can be incredibly technical, and need in depth knowledge to stay safe. Even then, there’s no guarantee – if you don’t understand it, don’t risk it.

If you believe you’ve been affected by this particular scam, please get in touch with us at OpGabbro@gmp.police.uk with the following details:

  • The name of the savings and trading service invested in
  • The name of the law enforcement you reported the crime to, and officer details
  • Wallet addresses and documentation to prove ownership

(GRT MANCHESTER) Crown Court Report: A man from Oldham has been jailed for life for ‘fatally stabbing’ his girlfriend to death and leaving her dead in their flat for around three weeks #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.28: Daniel Grant Smith (27/10/1979), of Ashton Road, Oldham, pleaded guilty to her murder and was sentenced at Manchester Crown today (27 July). He will serve a minimum of 17-and-a-half years in jail: Miss Bohajczuk, who had a young son, shared a flat with Smith from June 2020.

#AceDailyNews reports that an Oldham man jailed has been jailed for life after stabbing girlfriend to death after officers were called around 12.15pm on Thursday 4 March 2021 to a report of concern for the welfare of a woman at an address on Ashton Road: Emergency services attended and a woman was sadly pronounced dead at the scene, later identified as 29-year-old Imogen Bohajczuk.

In February this year, she reported to police that Smith had assaulted her and left marks on her neck and wrists. She also reported an assault from November 2020.

On 4 March 2021, a friend had become concerned about Miss Bohajczuk as she had not seen or heard from her since 15 February. She entered the flat and found her friend lifeless in bed with multiple stab wounds: A post-mortem later confirmed she had been stabbed three times and that any of them could have killed her. There were also strangulation marks around her neck.

After he had killed her, Smith had attempted to cover his tracks by making calls from Miss Bohajczuk’s mobile phone and used her debit card, including to buy petrol, on several dates in February: Smith became the prime suspect in the investigation and when he was arrested at a friend’s house on 5 March he had the debit card in his possession.

Detective Inspector Andy Naismith, of GMP’s Major Incident Team, said: “Firstly, our thoughts are with the victim’s family and friends who have had to endure such a tragic and traumatic event: This was a brutal and cowardly attack on a defenceless woman and Smith has quite rightly been jailed for life: He gave no thought to the victim before, during or after the attack and attempted to cover his tracks by using the victim’s phone and bank cards: He also left the victim at the address and it is believed before being discovered she had been dead for around three weeks – he did not admit the offence until the full weight of the evidence was put to him: The family are now left to pick up the pieces of their lives and to try and come to terms with the death of a daughter, sister and loving mother – nothing will ever bring them peace.”

(GRT MANCHESTER) Lowry Nightingale Crown Court Report: A man from Oldham who sexually abused four boys in the 1980s has been jailed for a decade.

#AceNewsReport – July.18: After a two-week trial at The Lowry Nightingale Court in Salford, Riley was convicted of indecent assaults and gross indecency: The court heard how Riley, from the Ewood area, abused the boys separately, on all but one occasion, at his garage on Burlington Avenue where he lived at the time.

#AceDailyNews reports #HistoricSexAbuse case of Oldham man Damien Riley (26/04/1966) was jailed on Friday 16 July at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court and ordered to serve 10 years after being found guilty of 14 offences he committed as a teenager against victims aged as young as five over a period of six years.

Police were not aware of Riley’s offending until one of the victims made a report in August 2018 and an investigation commenced by detectives in Oldham CID.

On interview, Riley denied any wrongdoing and continued to deny the offences after being charged a year later, accusing his victims of conspiring to construct a series of lies to have him convicted.

The jury came back with 13 guilty indecent assault verdicts and one count of gross indecency on Friday 18 June, and Riley was sent to prison for 10 years and ordered to sign the sex offenders register for life.

The victims – aged five, seven, eight and nine when the offending started – have been supported throughout operation by specialist officers and partner agencies.

Detective Constable Vicki Tait, of GMP Oldham’s CID, said: “The experiences these men went through as children were harrowing and have left lifelong mental and emotional scars for each of them, but to have the courage and bravery to relive that abuse again in court nearly four decades later is of real testament to each of them: Riley’s crimes were committed many years ago, but that does not mitigate or diminish the severity of the offences or the impact that it had on his victims: It is satisfying that regardless of the time passed, we are able to ensure we have a compelling enough case to bring Riley to court and make him accountable for the manipulative and predatory actions he inflicted on these men when they were so young and vulnerable: I urge anyone who is a survivor of non-recent sexual abuse to report it to police so that we can ensure those reports are fully investigated with a view to continue to bring offenders to justice.”

Anyone affected by this case can contact police online, if able, via www.gmp.police.uk or call 101. Details can also to be passed to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

(GRT MANCHESTER) GM Major Incident Team Report: An officer who also previously ran the Trafford Volunteer Police Cadets has been charged with offences including misconduct in public office and sexual assault #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.18: In October 2018, PC Adnan Ali was arrested on suspicion of police corruption, following a report of abuse of position for a sexual purpose….

#AceDailyNews reports that threw CPS have investigated an officer and cadet leader charged over alleged sexual offences after GMP referred the matter to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) who decided the investigation should be managed, and the investigation was carried out by GMP’s Major Incident Team supported by the Professional Standards Branch, under the IOPC’s independent direction and control.

The 34-year-old, based in Trafford, was arrested again on 16 November 2018 on suspicion of police corruption and sexual assault and on 13 March 2019 on suspicion of sexual assault, misconduct in public office and distributing an indecent image.

The investigation was completed and evidence passed to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in August 2019. The CPS has now authorised charges against the officer.

A number of victims and their families have received and continue to receive specialist support and a review into the Volunteer Police Cadet scheme commenced immediately in 2018 and has seen a vast number of improvements made across the force.

PC Ali has today been charged with:

  • 15 counts of misconduct in a public office
  • Five counts of sexual assault
  • Distribution of an indecent image of a child

PC Ali will appear before Liverpool Magistrates’ Court on 5 August 2021.

Assistant Chief Constable Nicky Porter said: “I understand charges of this nature towards a Greater Manchester Police Officer will cause concern amongst the public, particularly with those who are involved in the Trafford Volunteer Police Cadets scheme. I want to offer assurances that we have worked closely with the IOPC on the investigation and a review of the cadet scheme was launched immediately following the initial report. We have and will continue to provide specialist support to all those affected by this case.

“I would urge anyone with information to contact the investigation team directly via email on op.ector@gmp.police.uk or by calling 0161 856 7386. Greater Manchester Victims’ Services can provide emotional and practical support to anyone affected by crime. You can contact your local service by dialling 0161 200 1950, or request a call back via www.gmvictims.org.uk, to talk through support available from trained Independent Victim Advocates. Due to the case being subject to legal proceedings it would be inappropriate to comment any further at this time.”

(GRT MANCHESTER) Bolton Crown Court Report: The following were sentenced Wednesday (14 July 2021) after pleading guilty to conspiracy to supply drugs #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.16: Today’s sentencing is the result of a large scale investigation by GMP’s Serious and Organised Crime Group (SOCG) as part of Operation Billabong, targeting drug supply in Greater Manchester.

#AceDailyNews reports that seven men from Greater Manchester have been sentenced to over 51 years in jail for their roles in a class A and B drugs conspiracy, uncovered by a dedicated GMP operation

OpBillabong (1).png

Scott Round (03/09/1987), of Leader St, Wigan, was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for conspiracy to supply class A and class B drugs.

Craig Walsh (30/10/1985), of Southern St, Wigan, was sentenced to a total of seven years and eight months for conspiracy to supply class A and B drugs.

Joshua Hill (15/04/1989), of Leader St, Wigan, was sentenced to nine years and six months imprisonment for conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.

Cameron Jones (10/05/1999), of Ormskirk Rd, Wigan, was sentenced to a total of eight years and six months imprisonment for conspiracy to supply class A drugs and wounding with intent.

Adam Tempest (18/09/1986), of Dicconson St, Standish, was sentenced to three years for conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.

Arran Parkin (08/12/1974), currently of HMP Manchester, who is currently serving a 14 year sentence for Conspiracy to commit GBH was also sentenced at an earlier date to nine years, to run consecutively to his current sentence. Parkin was found guilty after a five week trial at Bolton Crown Court.

Thomas Kavanagh (29/03/1985), was sentenced to four years at an earlier date while the investigation was still live and has already served his sentence in prison.

This brings the total prison sentence for all involved to 51 years and 8 months.

From September-November 2019, officers conducted a surveillance investigation culminating in a number of warrants being executed at numerous addresses across Greater Manchester, specifically in the Wigan area. The Police seized a significant amount of drugs, (namely cocaine, ketamine and cannabis), as well as cash, mobile phones and paraphernalia commonly used in the preparation and distribution of drugs.

It was during these warrants that the convicted were arrested and later charged.

Detective Chief Inspector Tony Norman, of GMP’s Serious and Organised Crime Group said: Today’s result is a success for the investigation team, CPS and Prosecution Counsel, who have all worked tirelessly to make sure that these men have been taken off the streets of Greater Manchester and are no longer able to contribute to the devastating drugs trade that sees communities living in fear and people’s lives destroyed: This was a well-funded group of criminals who used encrypted mobile devices which utilise increasingly sophisticated technology to attempt to hide messages from police: These devices are almost exclusively used for criminal activity but our specialist officers were able to infiltrate the devices to recover crucial evidence which helped convict these people: I hope todays sentence sends a strong message to anyone involved in this type of crime that we will catch up with you and do all we can to see that you are brought to justice.”

(CHESHIRE, U.K.) GM Economic & Cyber Crime Section Report: £20k worth of cash was seized this morning (5 July 2021) at a cottage in the Rainow area of Macclesfield, as part of a large investment fraud investigation #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.06: The raid is part of Operation Penina, an on-going investigation into a complex investment type fraud run by sophisticated criminal groups, primarily targeting elderly victims and spanning across the United Kingdom.

#AceDailyNews reports on ‘Operation Penina’ UPDATE: On the seizure of £20,000 cash in morning raid in Macclesfield and officers from GMP’s Economic and Cyber Crime Section executed a warrant at the property just before 07:30am and located the cash inside a carrier bag on a shelf.

Today’s raid follows on from the initial raid as part of the operation which was executed at properties in Rochdale and Levenshulme back in May, in which over 20 designer watches and around £4k in cash was seized and three people were arrested.

There are now currently eight suspects under investigation as part of Operation Penina, pending further enquiries.

Victims of the fraud had searched online for ISA investments, and following this were contacted and persuaded to transfer money into what they believed was a well-known banking establishment, when really it was into a fraudulent banking product.

Over £150,000 worth of victim’s money was transferred into accounts within the Greater Manchester area and laundered into further accounts to benefit influential members of criminal groups.

Detective Chief Inspector Joseph Harrop, from GMP’s Economic and Cyber Crime Section, said: “The raid today has been the culmination of a great team effort, which will continue beyond today: Over a period of months, officers and staff from the Economic and Cyber Crime Section have gathered intelligence and evidence, leading to the activity today where we have been able to continue to enforce, intervene and tackle the issue of investment fraud: The methods employed by criminals operating this type of fraud, are very convincing to even the most diligent of victims: They utilise documents, email accounts, telephone numbers and web addresses that upon first appearance seem genuine: Today’s excellent result will significantly disrupt this kind of fraudulent activity that lines the pockets of organised crime groups, and protect well-meaning people from falling victim to sophisticated scams in the future: Covid-19 has affected us all in different ways, for some it has brought financial uncertainty and unfortunately it is this vulnerability that fraudsters will look to exploit: Our message to the public is to take your time with your money and personal information and don’t let anyone pressure you into making a rushed decision: Fraudsters are sophisticated and their investment scams will look like genuine investments with professional-looking websites and documents, so always check the Financial Conduct Authority’s ScamSmart warning list first. The @gmpfraud Twitter account also has up-to-date information on scams.

“Anyone who suspects they have been a victim of fraud to report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.”

(GRT MANCHESTER) GMP Serious & Organised Crime Unit Report: Officers working with other law enforcement agencies have reached a one year milestone on taking down organised crime groups using EncroChat #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.02: In July 2020, GMP alongside nearly ever law enforcement agency across the UK came together as part of the National Crime Agency led ‘Operation Venetic’ The huge scale operation saw enforcement agencies across the UK join together and share expertise in order to takedown ‘Encrochat’, a highly sophisticated global communication service which allowed organised criminal groups to communication with each other freely.

#AceDailyNews reports that Firearms, ammunition, class A and B drugs and over £2.5 million in cash seized as mammoth GMP operation reaches one year milestone with NCA led Operation Venetic and use of EncroChat network

 15:09 01/07/2021

Codenamed ‘Operation Foam’, the force wide operation has been in constant action for the past twelve months:

Operation foam 1 year

The operation was sparked after EncroChat was cracked by an international law team in May 2020, springing UK’s police forces and agencies across the country into collective and direct action.

GMP’s Serious and Organised Crime Unit launched a series of intricate investigations bringing together 16 teams of officers from across all ten districts of Greater Manchester.

To date, under Operation Foam, GMP has:

• Executed over 175 warrants across Greater Manchester
• Arrested 167 people
• Charged 128 people
• Recovered 10 firearms and over 1100 rounds of ammunition
• Seized approximately 12 kilos of class A and approximately 25 kilos of Class B drugs
• Seized over 2.5 million in cash
• Over £300,000 worth of property including luxury jewellery and vehicles.

Detective Chief Inspector Joe Harrop said: “Operation Foam has been a colossal operation that has brought together teams of specialist officers and detectives from across Greater Manchester Police who have carried out endless hours of meticulous investigative work in order to takedown the encrypted communication platform EncroChat: Over the past 12 months we have carried out countless warrants amounting to 167 arrests and 128 people being subsequently charged. These results are testament to the dedication and determination of all involved and their efforts have been integral in continuing GMP’s commitment to pursuing organised criminals and ensuring justice prevails: There’s no place for organised crime across Greater Manchester and the impact of drugs and criminal activity blights communities and can have serious lasting detrimental impact. GMP is committed to ensuring our communities are protected and safeguarded and Operation Foam will continue at pace to ensure we can fulfil this promise.”

Detective Superintendent Paul Denn from the North West Regional Organised Crime Unit (NWROCU) said: Since the takedown of ‘EncroChat’ twelve months ago, our officers have continued to work together with our six North West police forces, to identify the criminals who were using the encrypted devices to carry out their illegal activity: Tackling serious and organised crime, and those who cause the most harm to our communities in the North West remains our top priority here at the NWROCU, and we will continue use all our specialist tactics to disrupt these dangerous offenders operating across our region: Since last July more than 400 people have been arrested across the North West and more than £16 million pounds in cash and 400kg of Class A and B drugs seized as part of Operation Venetic: I can reassure communities across the North West that we will leave no stone unturned – we will continue to interpret, analyse and share intelligence and data to target and dismantle the most hardened criminals in our region.”

(GRT MANCHESTER) GM Police Report: A total of 13 raids have been carried out in two weeks by officers in the City of Manchester division as part of an operation to crackdown on sophisticated cannabis farms #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.28: The operation, codenamed ‘Operation Download’, was launched at the start of the month after a number of violent disputes believed to be involving criminal groups and cannabis farms in recent months.

#AceDailyNews reports Operation Download: During the #pandemic growth of cannabis farms has grown with organised crime and money laundering as GMP Officers continue crackdown in North Manchester with 13-recent-raids

Raids.jpg

Yesterday (24 June 2021), three further warrants were executed in the Strangeways and Moston areas of the city. Last week, on 15 June 2021, the team of officers recovered over 170 plants on Eadington Street in Crumpsall and over 70kilos were found at other addresses on Haversham Road and Huntley Road.

Today’s action follows a number of warrants already executed by the team in the Crumpsall, Blackley, Prestwich and Moston. A total of nine suspected cannabis farms have been dismantled and seized.

Seven men have been charged and one has been released under investigation pending further enquiries.

Police are set to continue with the action in the coming weeks and appeal to any members of the public with concerns or information to contact them.

Detective Inspector Paul Crompton, of GMP’s City of Manchester North division, said: “This targeted action comes after an increase in violent disputes between rival groups that we believe concerns cannabis farms in north Manchester.

“We are aiming to take out as many of these cannabis farms as we possibly can. Part of our crackdown is about us working with Manchester City Council and relevant local partners to develop an understanding of how these groups are managing to use properties in the city to carry out this alleged activity.

“The local community understandably has strong concerns about such activity and this operation is also to reassure them that we are listening and that we are taking robust action.

“Not only is the production of illegal drugs a criminal offence, but the mechanics of producing such substances pose a really dangerous threat to neighbouring addresses and it is vital we continue this work and seize assets.”

Anyone with concerns or information can contact GMP’s City of Manchester CID on 0161 856 3548. Details can also be passed to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
