This is the moment a police officer posed as an Amazon delivery man… to snare a drug dealer
GMP carried out the raids after complaints from local people
This is the astonishing moment a police officer posed as an Amazon delivery man to snare a drug dealer.
Footage was released as the last of 31 criminals who helped bring illegal substances to the streets of Manchester was convicted.
The sting began when the undercover officer arrived at the home of Jay Jay Mckay dressed in jeans, t-shirt, and wearing a hi-visibility vest with a parcel in his hand.
He rang the bell and waited for the door to be opened.
Hiding a few yards away were plain clothes officers armed with a battering ram.
When McKay looked through his bedroom window in Droylsden the ‘delivery man’ waved the parcel and beckoned him to come downstairs.
As soon as he opened the front door of the house in Droylsden, the delivery man and other officers stormed the property.
At Manchester Crown Court Mckay, 29, was sentenced to eight years’ jail after being found guilty of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.
He was one of 30 people convicted after GMP smashed major drugs rings operating in north Manchester.
GMP carried out dawn raids in the areas in February after complaints from local people about the extent and brazen nature of drug dealing on the streets by organised crime groups.
All of the dealers convicted played a role in the operation of drugs hotlines in different areas where people would place orders via telephone before meeting one of the suppliers who would make the drop in a car or on a bike.
