Merseyside Police detectives investigating serious and organised crime have arrested a wanted man on suspicion of firearm and drug offences following an armed containment on an address in Birkenhead last night, Monday 18 December.

At around 11.50pm, a 29-year-old man from Tuebrook was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply heroin in the Dorset area, and on suspicion of possession of a firearm, an offence from 2015 following a warrant carried out at a unit in Studholme Street, Bootle. On 12 November 2015, a number of firearms were recovered from this location and forensically examined.

The man has been taken to custody for questioning by detectives.
