Three men were arrested and cash seized after a car was stopped in Huyton last night, Monday 28 June.
At around 10.30pm, a white Audi car came to the attention of officers on patrol as it drove at speed down Woolfall Heath Avenue before turning into Stockbridge Lane. After being asked to stop by officers, the Audi made off at speed from traffic lights before being brought to a stop on Liverpool Road by a police vehicle.
Following a search of the vehicle and its three occupants, officers seized a large quantity of cash. Three men - a 28-year old from Huyton, a 28-year-old from Walton, and a 19-year-old from Huyton - were arrested on suspicion of possessing criminal property.
A further search resulted in the 28-year-old passenger from Huyton being arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class A drug. The 19-year old passenger was also arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class B drug.
They remain in custody for questioning by detectives.
