An estimated 1.5kilos of drugs has been recovered from a house in Weaste.

Shortly before midday today, Wednesday 12 September 2012, officers from the Salford Central Neighbourhood Policing Team executed a drugs warrant at a house on Edward Avenue.

Approximately 1.5kilos of what is believed to be amphetamine was recovered.

A 34-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possessing a controlled drug with intent to supply and remains in police custody.

Neighbourhood Inspector Dave Henthorne, said: “While the value of the drugs are not known, what is evident is that we have recovered a significant amount of drugs that were destined for the streets of Salford and beyond.

“Today’s arrest is part of Operation Harvest – the Force’s ongoing campaign to target those criminals that cause the most harm and misery to people in our county – and we have once again proven that we will take a robust approach to tackling those involved in the production, sale and supply of drugs.

“I want to thank the community for their ongoing support in our fight against such criminal enterprises and would urge anyone with information about drug or other criminal activity to contact us in absolute confidence.”
