FIGHTS, drug dealing and anti-social behaviour kept police busy last month.

PCSO Phil Hambleton has shared a round-up of what police in Lostock Gralam got up to in March.

One incident saw a man arrested for breaching his bail conditions after shouting and swearing outside a residential property.

The same man was arrested again for public order offences after making hand gestures of a gun and drawing his fingers across his throat.

On another date, police arrested a different man for being drunk and disorderly following a fight on the corner of Manchester Road and Station Road.

Officers were also called to reports of a person on the rail tracks by the station but no trace of anyone was found.

There were also reports of youths “running riot” on Hesketh Drive, staring into residential properties and intimidating residents.

Enquiries to identify the youngsters involved are ongoing.

Police in Lostock Gralam are also planning a joint visit to an address on Wilson Crescent amid reports of the smell of cannabis.

Meanwhile, officers made several arrests on the roads.

The occupants of one vehicle were arrested in connection with the supply of Class A drugs following a stop check on Manchester Road.

The driver was also charged with various driving offences.

Another stop check, this time on Wells Avenue, resulted in the arrest of a driver for public order offences with the investigation ongoing.

Police also acted on reports of a potential drink driver on Stubbs Lane.

After locating and stopping the vehicle the driver provided a positive test and was subsequently charged.

Meanwhile, a speed enforcement session on Manchester Road saw seven offences reported.

There were also reports of a young person riding a motorbike up and down Gibbon Drive.

However, no details of the motorbike or a more specific address were provided.

The next PCSO surgery in will be in Lostock Gralam on Monday (April 22) at Costa Coffee between 1pm and 2pm.

PCSO Hambleton said: “Everyone is welcome to come along to say hello and discuss any local issues or concerns.”
