Stephen SancroftStephen SancroftInitially pulled over by police on Stockport Road for driving while on his mobile phone and performing dangerous manoeuvres, Sancroft became noticeably agitated when two detectives from the Neighbourhood Policing Team in Didsbury began asking routine questions.

Detective Constable Dave Bird said, “As an experienced officer you know when a routine stop is not routine and immediately Sancroft's behaviour aroused our suspicion.

"At the first mention of drugs he bolted and a search of his car revealed exactly why. With a previous conviction for drugs offences he clearly did not want to be caught.

Sancroft has previously spent two years in prison for possession with intent to supply crack.
