The warrants – at addresses in the city centre, south Manchester, Salford,Trafford and one in North Wales, represent the culmination of a proactive eight-month long investigation into a predominantly Albanian crime gang suspected of being involved in the sale and supply of cocaine.

Chief Superintendent Wasim Chaudhry, Divisional Commander for North Manchester,bsaid: “The Organised Crime Group we have targeted today lurks in our city’s shadows, peddling their drugs and preying on a wide spectrum of people living and visiting the region, many of whom are vulnerable.

“The robust action taken this morning was done with the sole intention of disrupting them and although we have made these arrests there is stillan awful lot more work to be done and we would encourage anyone with information about those involved in the sale and supply of drugs to come forward and work with us by telling us what you know.

“Our multi-agency approach hopefully demonstrates to our communities that, we are committed to tackling organised crime across Manchester. In Collaboration with our partner agencies, we aim to disrupt and dismantle such criminal groups, leaving no stone unturned as we seek to put a halt to their activities.

“Cocaine is one of the most commonly used recreational drugs in the UK so it comes as no surprise that we frequently see a direct correlation between cocaine abuse and violence in the city centre.

“During our peak demand times around the night time economy it is clear that cocaine driven violence has a huge impact on the policing resources in the city centre so tackling the root cause of the problem is obviously a top priority for us.”

DEAD: Sally Jones Britain’s Most Wanted Woman and Islamic State Recruiter Killed

Published

on

The White Widow Sally Jones has been Killed in a US Drone Strike, Jones who had planned many terror attacks fled the UK to become a IS Recruiter.

She was Britain’s Most Wanted Woman. It is believed she died in a US Air Force Drone Strike which happened near to the border of Syria and Iraq.

Jones was killed in June 2017, with the news kept hush because of fears that her 12-year-old son may have also been killed.

Jones left her home in Chatham, Kent in 2013 with her son Jojo to join Islamic State in Syria. During this time she often used her son as a human shield to save her own life.

The CIA and MI6 spent months tracking down Jones before they launched a Drone Strike and killed her.

She played a key role in the recruitment of young females becoming jihadis often leaving their families in the middle of the night to head out and join the Islamic State.

Despite the claims that Jones is dead, the US cannot 100 percent be sure she is dead, as they made no attempt to recover any DNA, But they are very confident that she is dead.

Drone Strikes are very clever in the way they work as they are able to follow targets for a number of weeks before launching a missile attack without any civilians being killed.

However, they cannot confirm if 12-year-old brainwashed Jojo has been killed also, something which the Americans could face a backlash over.

Jojo was brainwashed he faced years of forced lessons in radical Islam & firearms training. He recently featured within an IS execution video standing behind a row of prisoners who was kneeling on the floor before pulling the trigger and murdering them.

Jones converted to Islam and was nicknamed the White Widow after her Islamic State husband Junaid Hussain was killed by a drone in 2015.

Hussain aged 21 and from Birmingham brainwashed Jones to such a degree she became head of recruitment for young women and schoolgirls within the Islamic State.

Jones & Hussain planned many attacks across Europe and America and is believed to have been a key recruiter and brainwasher of many wanting to join the Islamic State.

Jones was linked to the planning of a number of major terror attacks including one which planned to blow up the Queen and Prince Philip on the streets of London during the VJ celebrations.
