During a search, officers recovered a numerous cannabis plants as well as other drugs. Both occupants were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A & C drugs as well as production of cannabis.
Inspector Neil Birkett said: “The reality of drug dealing is that it is extremely dangerous - users are at risk of fatality, whilst suppliers and dealers can face lengthy prison sentences.
“We want to take these substances off our streets and support vulnerable people who are being exploited for criminal gain.
“In the current climate where the Merseyside public may feel uncertain for one reason or another, we will continue to use increased visible patrols, act on community intelligence and conduct this type of policing to reassure our communities and disrupt criminal activity.
“I’d like to ask the public to continue supporting us and to come forward with information about anyone involved in crime and we will do our best to bring them to justice.”
