3 arrested as drugs, weapons and cash seized during Police raids in Sefton

3 people have been arrested after drugs, weapons and cash were found during Police raids of 6 homes, in Bootle and Seaforth, on Saturday, 15 April 2017. Merseyside Police Officers, from local Policing Teams executed the Misuse of Drugs Act warrants in response to information from the public about drug dealing and organised crime. During searches of a flat just off Seaforth Road, Officers found 40 bags of heroin, 40 bags of cannabis, 2 machetes and a quantity of cash. 2 males, aged 17 were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply and taken to a local Police Station to be questioned by detectives. At a house on Seaforth Road itself, where another warrant was executed, 2 bags of heroin were recovered and another teenage boy was arrested, this time on suspicion of possession of a controlled drug.  4 more warrants executed in the surrounding area did not lead to any further arrests or seizures.  Chief Inspector Paul Court from the force's community engagement unit said:- "I am delighted with today's results. We've taken drugs off the street of Bootle, we've seized cash from suspected criminals' hands and arrested three people. I am grateful for the support we continue to receive from the community as it allows us to target those involved in criminality so please keep the information coming in as it is invaluable. Last weekend we used new and improved stop and search powers to go after those who choose to deal drugs and carry firearms, putting the rest of the community at risk. This weekend we have used other powers and tactics to take our message through their front door. And the message is this... The people of Sefton won't tolerate your behaviour and neither will Merseyside Police. If you chose to continue with your criminal activity, then we will continue to work around the clock to come after you at every opportunity we get."
