Main article content
Officers from Project Medusa have executed a warrant this morning (Wednesday, 9 March) in Speke in the crackdown on County Lines.
Officers arrested a 47-year-old man from Speke, following investigations into County Lines drug dealing into West Mercia. He has been taken into custody in West Mercia, where he continues to be questioned.
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 these 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."
