Two Police Officers Arrested On Suspicion of Dealing Class A Drugs Following Raid
Two police officers have been arrested on suspicion of dealing class A drugs.
PCs Kerry Reeve and Adam Jackson, both 35, were subject to an anti-corruption raid where detectives seized items to probe for possible criminal connections, reports the Sun. The items seized included mobile phones.
PC Reeve serves in the Tactical Aid Unit and both officers were arrested in Bacup, Lancashire. Another 35-year-old man was arrested in Haslingden. This follows the arrest of a 29-year-old man who was arrested back in February. They have all since been released on bail.
Greater Manchester Police said: "As part of an ongoing operation, officers from GMP executed a number of warrants in Middleton, Haslingden and Bacup.
"They arrested two men and a woman, all aged 35, on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs."
They continued: "A further arrest of a 29-year-old man was made on February 17.
"One of the men and the woman are serving officers with GMP. The officers have been suspended. All four have been bailed pending further enquiries."
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) are also investigating.
They said: "We're supervising an investigation conducted by Greater Manchester Police into allegations against two officers concerning the supply of drugs.
"The IPCC is regularly updated on progress and will be informed of the outcome in due course."
There are pictures online of PC Reeve in full gear during the 2011 Manchester riots.
According to the Sun, she shouted 'fuck off' when The Sun visited her home in Middleton, Greater Manchester.
They reported that an unknown man claimed to be her partner, and then proceeded to smash a reporter's car window with his fist before jumping on the bonnet.
