Merseyside Police has arrested a man after a Misuse of Drugs Act Warrant was executed yesterday at a property in Ainsdale.

Neighbourhood officers executed the warrant on Heather Close at about 7.55pm after information was received from the community.

Once inside the property officers carried out a full search of the house and found a large quantity of cannabis and a large amount of money.

A short time later a 30-year-old man from Southport was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class B drug (cannabis), money laundering, possession of a lock knife and driving while unfit.

He has been bailed pending further enquiries.

Sefton Neighbourhood Inspector Jim Atherton said: “Officers carried out a search warrant at an address yesterday evening following information received from the local community. This has led to us finding a quantity of drugs and taking them off the streets. The information we are given by our communities is integral to us keeping Merseyside safe.

“If you think someone on your street is involved in the supply of controlled drugs then please ring us – yesterday’s recovery just goes to show we do take information from the public very seriously and we will act on it.

“I would like to reassure the public that we will be relentless in our pursuit of offenders and of people who think they can profit from the misery of others.”

Anyone with information about crime in their area is asked to call the 101 number or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
