A 22 year old man from Halewood was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply drugs. All four people have been released under investigation until next month.
Inspector Jon Coote said: “It’s good to see our communities working together and reaching out to us should they feel concerned about this sort of criminal activity going on in their neighbourhood.
“In this case, we’ve managed to arrest four people. Four people that had the potential to cause misery in this neighbourhood.
“It is so important that we continue to dismantle these dangerous locations as supplying, dealing and growing drugs often leads to other serious and violent crime and by taking these people off our streets, we also put a stop to other offences being committed. So please keep telling us if you have suspicions and we'll make sure you’re safe.
“Anyone with information on similar crimes being committed or if you’re worried that someone you know might be involved in criminal activity should get in touch @MerPolCC, call 101 or contact @CrimestoppersUK anonymously.” #OpTarget
