Dale Cregan to appear at Hacienda this weekend
September 7, 2012, 4:59 pm
More than 100 addresses have been searched so far and officers are continuing to make visits to Cregan’s family and associates every few hours until he comes forward.
This weekend, Dale’s photo will also be shown on the large digital screens around Manchester city centre and Tameside.
GMP has hundreds of officers that remain dedicated to not only investigating the shooting and grenade attacks on 10 August, but also providing armed patrols on the streets of Clayton and Droylsden.

Police in Manchester have been working with forces across the UK as the operation to locate Cregan intensifies, but particularly with neighbouring forces including West Yorkshire.
Assistant Chief Constable Garry Shewan said: “Today marks the fourth week since the shooting and grenade attacks in which David Short was tragically killed. Since that day, we have not relented in our high profile policing operation.
“My officers have been paying regular visits to all of Dale Cregan’s family members, friends and associates and the message I want to send out loud and clear is we will continue to make these visits until Dale is found.
“Dale has now been in hiding for almost a month, during which time his photo has been splashed all over the media, digital screens and advertising vans around Greater Manchester and beyond.
“However, I want to stress to Dale that all we want, and I’m sure all he wants too, is to find a safe way to resolve this situation. We don’t want a stand-off or any drama, but just to end this peacefully.
“Dale can take control of this matter by speaking to a family member, friend, or his solicitor, and arrange to come into a police station or speak to the police.
“Dale’s family are desperate to see him safe and so I would urge him to contact someone he trusts today, and work with us to end this safely.”
