£200k seized in city centre drugs bust

Merseyside Police has recovered a significant amount of cash and suspected Class A drugs yesterday, Thursday 10 March, following a search at an address on Leeds Street, Liverpool.

A large quantity of cash (approximately £200,000), blocks of white powder (suspected Class A drugs) and drugs paraphernalia, was seized. 

Extensive police enquiries are ongoing to establish the provenance of the cash and drugs. 

Detective Chief Inspector Paul Nilsen said, “Thanks to the work of our officers, a large quantity of drugs has been taken off our streets and enquiries are ongoing to locate those linked to  this significant finding. 

“We know those who deal in illegal drugs use violence and intimidation in an effort to maintain their illicit business, and every seizure of drugs we make takes the source of drug dealers’ income out of circulation.

“No criminal should profit from such misery while our wider law-abiding communities work hard to earn an honest living. If you know someone in your area involved in suspected drug dealing please let us know so we can take them off our streets.”
