Meanwhile . . . in Pott Shrigley

Meanwhile, over in Pott Shrigley, Cheshire Police Rural Crime Team were called to the village early this morning (June 11) after a farmer reported people in his field running after his livestock.

Police officers detained two men, from Greater Manchester who, following a search, were discovered to have a quantity of cannabis in their car.

A drugs swipe on the driver proved positive, both men were placed in custody and the car was seized.

The driver was arrested on suspicion of drug-driving and both men were also arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply.

The Rural Crime Team posted on Facebook: “We’re still out and in Pott Shrigley, I’ve just arrested two males from the Greater Manchester area, for Possession of Cannabis with intent to supply and one of them (the driver) for providing a positive drugs wipe.

“This came about after a farmer reported people in his field running after his livestock.

“As we arrived the car came down the single track road and came face to face with us. Bad timing for them, but not as bad as their decision making.

“They’re off to custody and their car has been seized for being used in crime.

“A great big thank you to the officers from Macclesfield Police who came to assist us with the searches.

“It’s really important that we support our remote rural communities as even this suspicious incident has led to a couple of arrests and our rural roads being safer.

“The other vehicles at the location dispersed very quickly too, but most were from the wider Manchester area.”
