Merseyside police officers have carried out dawn raids at five addresses in Speke this morning as part of an operation to tackle serious and organised crime, including gun and drug related crime.

One man and one woman were arrested on suspicion of drug offences and searches of the properties have resulted in the recovery of drugs and £4000 cash, which has been seized.

At an address in Western Avenue, cannabis and drug paraphernalia were recovered and a 36-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of possession of cannabis with intent to supply.

At addresses in Eastern Avenue and Alderwood Drive, fixed penalty drug notices were issued to two men after small amounts of cannabis were recovered.

A total of £4000 was also seized from addresses in Eastern Avenue and Highbank Drive, which has been seized.

Officers have also carried out leaflet drops in the streets where warrants were carried out, and extra visibility and reassurance will be carried out this evening to speak to local residents.

Detective Chief Superintendent Chris Green, Head of Investigations, said: “The action taken by officers this morning is part of an operation targeting those involved in serious and organised crime within our communities.

“We are relentless in our pursuit of those involved in serious and organised crime and we are committed to making our streets safer for our communities.

“No-one should have to put up with those who cause misery in our communities through the supply and distribution of drugs and the use of firearms, which cause fear and intimidation in our streets and put our communities. We will work together with the decent law abiding members of our communities to improve the quality of life in our neighbourhoods and make our communities stronger.

“If you have any information in relation to those involved in gun or drug related crime in your community call us so we can do something about it and help you to improve your community. Calls to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 are anonymous.
