Police have arrested three men and seized a rifle, handgun and ammunition after a warrant was executed at a house in Speke yesterday (Friday 15 December).

Officers attended an address on Eastern Avenue at around 4pm and arrested a 19-year-old man from Bootle, a 35-year-old man from Speke and a 56-year-old man from Knotty Ash on suspicion of possession of a firearm without a certificate, and being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine. The 56-year-old was additionally arrested on suspicion of possession of crack cocaine. All three have now been released under investigation.

A rifle and a quantity of what is believed to be Class A drugs were also recovered from the property, and a handgun and ammunition were recovered from a nearby garden.

An investigation is ongoing.

Superintendent Mark Wiggins said: “The recovery of this handgun and rifle means tow more firearms have been taken off our streets and out of the hands of criminals who use such weapons to cause fear, intimidation or harm in our communities. We are delighted to have removed them and this ammunition from circulation.

“We are working closely with our partners and would encourage members of the public to continue to come forward with information which could assist us.”

Anyone who has any information about drugs or drug supply within their community can contact Merseyside Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
