Main article content
Officers from the force's Project Medusa have today, Wednesday 21st July, executed a warrant at address in Page Moss in the fight against County Lines drug dealing.
Officers arrested two people, following an investigation into County Lines drug dealing into the Widnes area of Cheshire.
A 19 year-old man from Norris Green and a 18 year-old woman from Page Moss have been arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs and possession of criminal property.
Searching officers also recovered a large quantity of cash.
Project Medusa Inspector Gary Stratton said: "Project Medusa is committed to cutting these lines and this type of activity will continue day in day out to take those criminals, who control these lines, off our streets.
"County Lines drug dealing not only affects the lives of the drug users, but also the communities in which they operate and the young and vulnerable people who are exploited by these criminals.
"We hope today's arrests and warrants send a message out to others involved in this type of criminality that we will take action and you will be arrested and put before the courts."
