Two men arrested after Class A and B drugs seized in Chorlton
Two men were detained in custody after Greater Manchester Police seized Class A and B drugs from a vehicle in Chorlton.
The incident happened in the early hours of Sunday morning (November 21) with officers also seizing several other weapons.
These included an extendable baton, a balaclava, mobile phones and cash in addition to the Seat vehicle itself.
A statement from Chorlton’s unit of Greater Manchester Police read: “Class A & B drugs seized along with an extendable baton, phones, cash, balaclava & car tonight by Op Dunstan patrols.
“Two adult males in custody awaiting questioning following their arrests.”
According to gov.uk, possession of Class A drugs can lead to a maximum of up to seven years in prison, an unlimited fine or both, while this reduced to five years for Class B drugs.
The severity of the penalty depends on a number of things, such as: the class and quantity of the drugs, where the person and drugs were found, personal history (criminal record) and other aggravating or mitigating factors.
Police can also issue a warning or on-the-spot fine of £90 if a person is found with cannabis – a Class B drug.
