Twelve men have been arrested in raids in North Manchester this morning as part of a crackdown on organised crime.
Police searched 15 properties in Newton Heath, Harpurhey, Moston, Salford and Failsworth.
The warrants were part of a multi-agency operation, code-named Operation Rudow, to disrupt the supply of drugs in the area.
The men were arrested on suspicion of a number of drug-related offences including on suspicion of supplying Class A drugs.
More than 30 properties have been raided by police in the last week.
