Main article content
Officers from our Matrix team have yesterday (7th January) arrested three people in connection with drugs offences.
The three men were stopped whilst driving on Speke Boulevard at around 4:40pm. Whilst searching the car, officers recovered a large amount of cannabis.
The driver, a 22 year old man and two passengers, both 17 year old men, were all arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a controlled drug.
A further search was conducted at all three addresses where at one home, connected to one of the 17 year olds, officers recovered a number of weapons and white powder, suspected as cocaine. This resulted in the man being further arrested for possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.
All three were taken to custody where they remain at this time as the investigation continues.
PSI Paul Dykhuizen said: “This is a great proactive arrest and shows what recoveries can be made following a stop search.
“We work continuously with the public and our partners to ensure that young people are not enticed into committing crime and I would urge anyone that has information on those involved or are worried that someone they know may be being exploited by a criminal gang, to please reach out to us.
“We are here to support those in need, protect and educate young people and try and deter them from getting involved in a criminal lifestyle, because sooner or later they will face serious consequences.”#OpTarget
