6 arrested in Southport after warrant executed

MERSEYSIDE Police arrested 6 people after a significant quantity of what is believed to be Class A drugs and cannabis was seized at an address in Southport, on Friday, 19 August 2016. Police Officers executed a Misuse of Drugs Act warrant at an address on Hampton Road, Southport, at about 10.40am and recovered around 200 wraps of white and brown powder, and cannabis. The wraps have been recovered for forensic examination and are being examined by Crime Scene Investigators. A 19 year old man, from Walton, a 45 year old man of no fixed abode, a 41 year old woman, from Southport, a 43 year old man, from Southport and a 40 year old man, from Southport, were all arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply controlled drugs (Class A).  Sergeant Stuart McLoughlin, from the Matrix Serious and Organised Crime unit, said:- "Merseyside Police treats all drug supply seriously and the discovery of this quantity of drugs has significantly disrupted the supply of this drug in to our communities. We believe this was a sophisticated operation and I have no doubt that this involved organised crime. The fact we have prevented a significant quantity of drugs from reaching the streets, where they fuel so much other crime, is extremely satisfying. Criminals make considerable money through the sale of drugs and this is money made on the back of misery that drugs bring to our communities. Today's arrests and seizure shows Merseyside Police will do all it can to take action against those who line their pockets to the detriment of our society." Anyone who has any information about those involved in the production or supply of drugs, is urged to contact Merseyside Police on:- 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on:- 0800 555 111. We will act on all information.
