PC Gran arrived at 4 Coronation Street in July 2011 when Kevin Webster reported his daughter Sophie for stealing £20,000 after she was conned into giving it to a fake charity by James Cunningham. When the officer arrived, however, Kevin's estranged wife Sally told him that it was a domestic situation. Despite this, the officer insisted on questioning Sophie about the fraudulent charity. Kevin told the officer it was his fault he lost the money even though it meant he wouldn't get compensation.
The officer was later on patrol at the Weatherfield General in October 2011 when fugitive John Stape was rushed in after suffering critical injuries in a car crash during a chase with Kevin Webster. When John's brother-in-law Chesney Brown arrived to see him, the officer refused to let him. He held Chesney back from entering the room when John went into cardiac arrest.
The officer later investigated in January 2012 when Tyrone Dobbs, Tina McIntyre and Kirsty Soames were involved in a car crash. Tina made an official complaint about officer Soames's previous harassment of her, and was called to the Street in March 2012 when a drunken Sunita Alahan climbed on top of a car. She was arrested for criminal damage but later released without charge.
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. PC Gran and PC Marks 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, PC Gran and PC Marks 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.
- The character was credited as "Police Officer" for his first seven appearances and only named in March 2013.
