Police have arrested a man and discovered a number of cannabis plants and a quantity of class A drugs, along with an air rifle during the execution of a warrant yesterday, 7 February 2018, in Kirkby.

Officers targeted the address in Changford Road and recovered around 103 plants.

A 20-year-old man from Norris Green has been arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled Class A drug with intent to supply, produce a controlled drug of Class B, possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of Class A and use of electricity without authority.

The man has now been released under investigation.

Inspector Andy Creer said: “We have seized 103 plants which would have been bound for sale on the streets of Merseyside and further afield. The cannabis plants are capable of generating over £400,000 a year, which would have lined the pockets of criminals.

“The recovery of a firearm means there is one less firearm on our streets that could be used to cause fear, intimidation or harm to our communities.

“Information from our communities is vital so anyone with information about those involved in gun crime, cannabis production, and the supply of drugs, or who knows where weapons are being stored, please contact us so that we can make our streets safer.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the social media desk @MerPolCC, call 101 quoting incident number 18200032549 , or you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously, on 0800 555 111
