Three people have been charged and remanded into custody following a proactive stop check into county line drug dealing in Macclesfield - and two weren't even from our town.
Following the stop check earlier this week on Monday July 19, officers conducted a search at a property on Macclesfield's Mill Street.
Officers discovered a substantial amount of cash and what is believed to be a quantity of Class A drugs.
One man and two women - with one of the females being from Macclesfield - were arrested.
Patrick Stewart-McGovern, 20, of Stonehill Street, Liverpool was arrested and subsequently charged with two counts of possession with intent to supply class A (heroin and cocaine) and possession of criminal property.
Amanda Greenall, 47, of Mill Street, Macclesfield was arrested and subsequently charged with two counts of permitting the use of a premises for supply and two counts of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs (heroin and cocaine).
Chelsie Dunne, 31, of Pall Mall, Liverpool was arrested and subsequently charged with two counts of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs (heroin and cocaine).
All appeared before Chester Magistrates Court and have been remanded into custody and will next appear at Chester Crown Court at a later date.
Despite three being arrested in connection with drugs, the most commonly reported crime in Central Macclesfield was Violence and Sexual Offences.
The most recent data from May 2021 suggests there were 64 Violence and Sexual Offences crimes reported.
May 2021 was Central Macclesfield's highest month of crimes of the year, with 182 reported.
This is the highest number since 194 Central Macclesfield crimes occured in December 2020.
