A Cheadle man has been charged with drugs offences and will appear before magistrates later this month.
Jordan Reeves, aged 20, from Park Lane in Cheadle, has been charged with possession with intent to supply a Class B drug, namely cannabis, production of a controlled drug, namely cannabis, and possession of a Class A drug, namely MDMA (more commonly known as ecstasy).
Reeves was charged yesterday (Wed) and has been bailed to appear before magistrates in Newcastle on September 16.
In April officers carried out a search warrant at Reeves’ address under the Misuse of Drugs Act.
The warrant was executed as part of Operation Nemesis – the force’s ongoing drive to tackle drug dealers and bring them to justice.
A number of controlled substances were seized from the address at the time.
PC Dave Stubbs, who helps to police Cheadlle, said: “Our commitment to tackling drug dealers, and those who benefit from such crime in Cheadle, is ongoing.
“These charges send out a clear message to the communities across the Staffordshire Moorlands - Staffordshire Police will not tolerate drug misuse and we will take dealers, and their associates, off the streets.
“We cannot continue this work without the help and support of local people, and the information they provide about crime in their community is imperative. These charges have come about as a direct result of information received from the local community.
“I would ask that the public continue to let us know about such issues so we can take the appropriate action.
“Together with our partners we will continue to take a tough stance on criminals involved in drugs and related anti-social behaviour.”
