We have arrested a man from Kirkby after uncovering Class A and Class B drugs and seizing several thousand pounds in cash yesterday (Thursday 10 November).
At around 5pm officers from Merseyside Police stopped a vehicle on the Field Lane Estate and spoke to the driver who officers suspected was drug driving.
After searching his car officers found a large amount of cannabis and approximately £3700 in cash.
Officers later searched an address in Kirkby where they found ecstasy tablets, a golf ball sized bag of white powder suspected to be Class A drugs, scales and a quantity of cash. Officers also seized silver and gold Ingots, three watches and a quantity of valuable coins from the property.
A 32-year-old man from Cronton was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cannabis, possession of criminal property and possession with intent to supply cocaine.
He was taken to a police station in Merseyside for questioning by detectives and has since been released under investigation.
