We have arrested a man and seized 66 wraps of Class A drugs after detaining a man in a car park in Walton yesterday (28 June).
A blue Hyundai came to the attention of a police patrol on County Road at 11.45am, and the driver then turned into Jack’s supermarket car park and left the vehicle.
Patrols detained the man and following a search, 40 wraps of suspected cocaine and 26 wraps of suspected heroin were seized.
A 43-year-old man from Old Swan was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and taken into custody to be interviewed. He has been released under investigation.
Detective Inspector Amy Smith said: “Proactive policing of our roads in Merseyside is a vital tool in our efforts to prevent drug dealers from operating on our streets, and protecting our most vulnerable from the exploitation and violence that often comes with it.
“Preventing criminals from using our road networks to transport drugs, cash and weapons deals a significant blow to their ability to commit crime, and helps us bring them to justice.
“No criminal should profit from misery in this way while the vast majority of people work hard to earn an honest living. If you know someone involved in crime, please let us know so we can put them before the courts and remove them from our streets.”
