63-year-old Bromborough man arrested after drugs seized

Officers have arrested a man following the discovery of suspected drugs in Wirral yesterday, Tuesday 24 January.

At around 3.10pm, officers were on patrol on Borough Road in Tranmere when they noticed a man in a Ford Focus car acting suspiciously.

Following a stop and search of the vehicle, officers found a small amount of suspected amphetamine, a burner phone and money.

A further search was carried out at an address in Bromborough and a large quantity of suspected amphetamine was found in the fridge.

Officers also discovered bags of white powder, cannabis and numerous individual wraps of amphetamine.

A 63-year-old man from Bromborough was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a controlled Class B drug – amphetamine. He has been released under investigation pending further enquiries.

Community Policing Inspector Daniel Greenhalgh said, “Thanks to proactive policing work a significant amount of drugs have been removed from our streets which cause harm in our communities.

“We urge people to continue coming forward with information and intelligence by either contacting us or anonymously through Crimestoppers so we can act.

“Stop searches, warrants, land searches and arrests take place all year round, and in many instances it is thanks to the public who tell us where there are issues in the community.

“If you have anti-social behaviour or criminality in your area let us know and we will take action.”

If you have any information on the possession of, storage or use of drugs and weapons in your community, please contact the Merseyside Police social media desk on Twitter @MerPolCC or Facebook ‘Merseyside Police Contact Centre’.
