The pair have both been remanded in custody and is set to appear at Crewe Magistrates’ Court on Friday 7 July.

Detective Inspector Claire Jesson Said “This is a great result which has led to the recovery of a significant quantity of Class A drugs, which could have been destined for the streets of Congleton or further afield.

“The corrosive effects of drugs are well known and we are committed to doing all that we can to disrupt and dismantle the network of organised criminals who blight our communities.

“Information from the public is vital and I urge anyone with any information in relation to the supply of drugs in their communities to contact the team here at Macclesfield on 101 and we will act on any intelligence we receive.”
