  1. The two men will appear in court tomorrow (1 September) charged with a number of offences including both supplying drugs and money laundering. Dylan Whitehead (DoB 18/11/1996) of Regent Square, Salford, has been charged with possession with intent to supply cocaine and heroin, and money laundering. Joseph Minas (DoB 15/08/2001) of Verdun Road, Eccles, has been charged with possession with intent to supply a psychoactive substance, obstructing a police officer, driving while disqualified, driving without insurance and money laundering. They have been remanded in custody to appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court on Wednesday 1 September. Both men were arrested on Eccles Old Road on Monday 30 August by officers from GMP's Transport Unit working in conjunction with officers from Operation Naseby. Operation Naseby is a dedicated GMP operation tackling organised crime in Salford.
  2. A male and female from Eccles have appeared at court accused of possessing a shotgun after being charged by detectives from GMP Salford's dedicated operation to tackle organised crime in the city - Operation Naseby. Kie Connor (02/03/2002), of Thorp Street, and Aimee Paterson (02/12/1997), of Fir Street, were held in custody to appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court earlier today (Tuesday 10 August) before being further remanded for a hearing at Manchester Crown Court on Tuesday 14 September 2021. Connor has been charged with the following 10 offences: possession of cannabis, possession of codeine, possession of a firearm, possession of ammunition, dangerous driving, possession of an offensive weapon, handling stolen goods, driving with no license, driving with no insurance, and possession of a shotgun without a certificate. Paterson is accused of possession of a shotgun without a certificate. On Sunday 8 August, a police patrol pursued a suspicious vehicle and brought it to a stop before a police car was damaged and a machete was allegedly discovered at the scene. Connor was arrested on suspicion of driving offences and in connection with a warrant in July 2021 at an address in the Eccles area of Salford where a quantity of suspected drugs, ammunition and a firearm was recovered by officers from Operation Naseby. A suspected shotgun was subsequently recovered at a second address in Eccles on the morning of Monday 9 August for which Connor was further arrested for, as well as Paterson.
  3. A man from Salford has admitted money laundering and drug offences after police executed three warrants in the Eccles area and seized nearly £200,000 in cash and class B drugs. Anthony Stephenson (04/12/1986), of Westwood Crescent, had been charged with possession with intent to supply a controlled substance and money laundering. He appeared at Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court today (Friday 4 June) where he admitted both counts. He was arrested yesterday (3 June) after dawn raids at his addresses and two other Salford addresses on Old School Court and Mitcheson Gardens. Hitting the jackpot: Part of the haul that officers discovered in Eccles yesterday It was at his address and the Mitcheson Gardens address where officers discovered a large quantity of cash - linked to Stephenson - within locked safe deposit boxes. A Cops and Robbers gambling machine was also discovered at one of the addresses where much of the £192,210 total was recovered. Controlled substances packaged for supply, believed to be amphetamine, were also found in Stephenson's possession and he was arrested and taken to custody. Stephenson has been recalled to prison for a breach of his license conditions and will be sentenced at a later date for the offences he pleaded guilty to today. A 31-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a controlled substance and he has since been released while enquiries continue. The Op Naseby disruption team have made their mark since forming in April 2020 The action comes as part of GMP Salford's Operation Naseby - a dedicated taskforce to tackling and disrupting organised crime in the city. Since its inception of the 'disruption hub' in April 2020, it has seen a notable decrease in organised crime activity, including a 40% drop in firearms discharges between April 2020 and March 2021. Anyone with information or concerns should contact police online, if able, via www.gmp.police.uk, or 101. Always call 999 in an emergency. Details can be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
  4. DCI Rick Thompson discusses the work of Operation Naseby so far: Operation Naseby a year on: Salford disruption activity sees shootings down, targets behind bars, and significant seizures of drugs, weapons and cars in its first year Firearms discharges have almost halved in Salford after GMP's dedicated operation to tackle organised crime in the city has seen the seizure of scores of weapons, drugs, and cars, as well as 180 arrests since its formation a year ago. The Operation Naseby disruption hub was introduced in April 2020 after a total of 25 firearms discharges, mostly involving a series of violent incidents between two rival criminal groups, in the space of 12 months in Salford. Over 30 officers - including detectives, complex safeguarding officers, neighbourhood patrols, and pursuit-trained officers - were tasked with proactively targeting and tackling offenders suspected of being involved in organised crime. Since its inception, the team has supported 179 arrests, 180 vehicle seizures, recovered over £500,000's worth of drugs, and searched over 75 houses. Weapons recovered have included a shotgun, two loaded crossbows, a number of machetes and dozens of other knives and bladed articles. Due to a backlog of court cases due to the pandemic, a further 42 cases are currently waiting to be heard. Twenty people have been recalled to prison, and numerous other offenders have been convicted of a range of drug, driving, and firearms offences, including several targets from the outset of the operation. This includes Jamie Swindells, 22, of Hereford Road, Eccles, who was convicted in September 2020 of possession of a bladed weapon, and possession with intent to supply crack cocaine after he was stopped in a vehicle and searched by officers. Swindells was believed to be involved in the dispute in the Kersal and Lower Broughton area in April 2020, which was one of the catalysts that prompted the hub's launch. He is now serving a five-and-a-half year sentence. Last week, Olatunde Kuberofsky, 23, from Salford, was jailed for over two-and-a-half years for possession with intent to supply crack cocaine, heroin and cocaine, and assault of an emergency worker, following a vehicle stop in Seedley. Kuberofsky tried to run away from the vehicle and physically assaulted an officer prior to being detained; subsequent searches found he was in possession of large quantities of Class A drugs and money. Yesterday (Tuesday 20 April), Tony Partington, 30, of Southgarth Road, and Spencer Candland, 36, of Langworthy Road, were jailed after they were found to have over £150,000's worth of cannabis in their car boot and at Partingon's address when stopped by officers in Langworthy in February 2020. They have each been sentenced to two-and-a-half years. Resources from GMP's Serious and Organised Crime Group, and Specialist Operations Unit have also been used to assist with the disruption hub's work. The team have worked with local agencies across Salford to safeguard vulnerable adults and children, and have continued collaboration with Salford City Council with Project Gulf - an initiative focused on diverting young people away from crime. Detective Chief Inspector Rick Thompson, head of proactive Salford CID, said: Anyone with information or concerns should contact police online via LiveChat or via 101. Always call 999 in an emergency. Details can be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
