PC Reeve, who served in a Tactical Aid Unit, was pictured in 2011 in full riot gear outside of a burning Miss Selfridge store as her team responded to trouble on Manchester’s streets.
She has also published snaps of herself online in a low-cut top and in uniform.
On another, of her working at Oldham Athletic’s stadium, she wrote: “Footie fans, watch out.”
And in a third, showing her with two fellow officers, she warned: “Don’t mess with the best ’cos the best don’t mess.”
Watchdogs from the Independent Police Complaints Commission were also investigating the matter.
Speaking at the time of the arrests, the IPCC said: “We’re supervising an investigation conducted by Greater Manchester Police into allegations against two officers concerning the supply of drugs.
“The IPCC is regularly updated on progress and will be informed of the outcome in due course.”
