We arrested a woman and recovered a significant amount of cash and drugs in Liverpool yesterday (Monday 17 May).
Police executed a Misuse of Drugs Act warrant at an address on Newsham Drive and recovered between £8,000 and £9,000 cash, found in the drum of a washing machine.
Officers also recovered a large amount of cannabis and drug paraphernalia.
A 54-year-old woman from Liverpool was arrested on possession with intent to supply a Class B drug and possession of a Class B drug.
She has been taken into custody for questioning by police.
Targeted Policing Chief Inspector Paul Sutcliffe said: “The arrest and significant cash seizure today is a great example of work by our officers to remove ill-gotten cash from our streets.
“Thankfully, a significant quantity of harmful drugs has now also been prevented from reaching our communities.
“No criminal should profit from misery while our wider law abiding communities work hard to earn an honest living. If you know someone involved in crime, please let us know so we can take them off our streets.
“Information from the public plays a vital part in targeting individuals involved in the supply of drugs and serious and organised crime, and I would like to continue to urge our communities to come forward to us, or to Crimestoppers completely anonymously, so that we can take action.”
Anyone with information about drug supply is asked to contact @MerPolCC, 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111. Always call 999 if a crime is in progress.
