40kg of cocaine and heroin seized in Page Moss

Officers have recovered a significant quantity of Class A drugs, following the execution of a warrant at an address in Page Moss yesterday evening (Thursday, 3 March).

The Organised Crime Partnership (OCP), a specialist team set up by the National Crime Agency (NCA) and Merseyside Police to tackle high risk organised crime groups linked to drugs and firearms, carried out the warrant at the address in Lordens Road and recovered over 40kg of what is thought to be heroin and cocaine.

Detective Chief Inspector Paul Speight said, “This seizure is part of the proactive work the OCP carry out to tackle organised crime.

“Thanks to a thorough search at the property, a large amount of drugs has been taken off our streets that could have caused harm to vulnerable members of our communities.

“I would continue to ask anyone who has information about this kind of criminal activity to come forward so action can be taken.”
