Two arrested and cash and drugs recovered in Kirkdale
Main article content
We arrested a man and woman and seized more than £10,000 and a large quantity of suspected cocaine during a warrant in Kirkdale yesterday (Monday 16 August).
The Misuse of Drugs Act warrant was executed at about 10.30am when officers found eight golf ball sized bags of white powder containing around 35-50 wraps, between £10-£15,000 in cash, a small quantity of cannabis, two Rolex and Tag Heuer watches, mobile phones and drugs paraphernalia.
A 21-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman, both from Kirkdale, were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A and B controlled drugs and possession of criminal property. They have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
Inspector Beth Blake said: “The arrests yesterday show that we will take proactive action to target anyone suspected of dealing dangerous and illegal drugs in the heart of our communities.
“This warrant means a significant quantity of drugs has been prevented from reaching those communities. No criminal should profit from the misery drugs bring while our wider law abiding communities work hard to earn an honest living, and we will go on conducting stop checks and warrants to make those who exploit our most vulnerable feel unwelcome here in Merseyside.
“If you have any concerns about any drugs or illegal items being stored, carried or used in your community, please come forward directly or anonymously and we will take action.”
