3 arrested and house raided following routine stop of a car in Toxteth

MERSEYSIDE Police Officers from the Force's Matrix Disruption Team have arrested 3 people and seized quantity of what is believed to be Class A and B drugs, following the routine stop of a car in Toxteth, Thursday, 21 April 2016.

We are told that Officers stopped the car in Horsfall Street, Toxteth, at around 8pm, 2 men were detained, at the scene and Officers recovered what was thought to be a small quantity of cocaine. Following this stop, Officers executed warrants at addresses in Toxteth and Mossley Hill, where they recovered, what is thought to be, approximately £20,000 worth of cannabis, £2,000 worth of cocaine and £4,000 worth of Ketamine, alongside a large quantity of cash and other drug production paraphernalia. The suspected drugs have since been seized and have been forensically examined.

Detective Chief Superintendent Paul Richardson said:- "This recovery and subsequent arrests shows how we will make extensive and thorough enquiries, to ensure drugs and those involved in their production and distribution are taken off our streets. These drugs can no longer be sold on the streets of Merseyside, where they cause harm and misery in our communities. I hope this action continues to show our communities how we deal with drug crime and I would encourage anyone out there with any information about illegal drug activity in their community to get in contact and give us the information we need to continue to remove the blight of drugs from our streets."

A 19 year old man, a 47 year old woman, both from Mossley Hill and 24 year old man from Toxteth, were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A and B drugs. They remain in Police custody for questioning.

Anyone with any information about illegal drug crime in their community can contact the specialist Matrix team on:- 0800 230 0600, 101 or give information to Crimestoppers anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.
