Manchester cop charged after drugs probe
A serving police officer has been charged with misconduct in a public office and a drugs offence after a police narcotics probe.
Greater Manchester Police (GMP) officer Daniel Aimson, 35, who is accused of misconduct and conspiracy to produce cannabis, was one of nine people charged following a drugs operation, the force said.
Aimson, of Ullswater Road in Astley, Greater Manchester, will appear alongside the other eight at Manchester Magistrates' Court on October 20.
Richard Grady, 30, of Park Road, Hindley; Steven Hindley, of Maesgwyn, Rhyl, North Wales; Michael Hutton, 52, of Crossley Court, Ancoats, Manchester; Christopher King, 48, of Bowling Green Court, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire; Hussain Mozahem, 24, of Findlay Street, Leigh; George Parkinson, 29, of Ullswater Street, Leigh; Jonathan Vaiders, 27, of Jaffrey Street, Leigh; and John Wallace, 44, of Stansbury Walk, Manchester, were all charged with conspiracy to produce cannabis.
Hutton was also charged with possession of amphetamine with intent to supply and Vaiders with possession of cocaine with intent to supply.
A tenth person, a 26-year-old woman from Astley arrested earlier on suspicion of money laundering and conspiracy to produce cannabis, was released on bail until December, GMP said.
