In March, Jason Grimshaw discovered that his van had been stolen whilst he was in a meeting to discuss details of a building contract with council officials. The officers called into the Rovers to confirm that a vehicle matching the same description had been found burnt out on some wasteland near the end of Corporation Road, and that they'd received information that someone closely resembling Jason was seen running away from the burning vehicle. The officers questioned Jason further in the privacy of the pub's back room but had to postpone their inquiries when Jason's partner Stella Price could verify the time that he arrived back after the incident. In reality, a bitter Karl Munro had taken the van and set fire to it, after overhearing that Jason was attending a meeting at Hebden House and followed him there.
In August, the officers called round to 10a Coronation Street to take a statement from Rita Tanner. After she had been cornered and taunted by a gang of youths on the Red Rec, they ultimately made off with her handbag and mobile phone. Having stated that the area was usually well patrolled, the officers took descriptions of some of the youths and advised Rita to put a stop on her mobile phone and any bank cards that she may have had in her purse at the time.
In April 2015 PC Gran called with another colleague to 19a Rosamund Street where he arrested Owen Armstrong for assault. Owen had gone for Craig Tinker, believing him to be the father of underage teenager Faye Windass's baby. Kirk Sutherland received a punch in the nose when he tried to defend his stepson.
PC Gran and his colleague PC Rawani were called out in August 2016 through an "anonymous tip-off" to investigate whether Robert Preston had been driving under the influence of alcohol. Taking particular interest in the proceedings were Craig Tinker, who had just returned from attending a Special Constable Information Day, and Nick Tilsley, who reported Robert for the alleged offence. After failing a roadside breathalyser test outside Nick's Bistro in Viaduct Street, Robert was arrested and taken to Weatherfield Police Station where he was issued with a fine and a twelve-month driving ban.
