A man has been arrested following a warrant executed yesterday (Thursday 11 May) in Wirral.
This was part of the ongoing Project Medusa, a Merseyside-led initiative set up to tackle County Lines drug dealing and child criminal exploitation.
The warrant was executed in a joint operation with Devon and Cornwall Police at a property on Highfield South in Rock Ferry.
Following the warrant, a 27-year-old man from Wirral has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs, aggravated burglary, and money laundering.
He has been taken into custody, where he continues to be questioned.
Detective Inspector Gary Stratton from Merseyside Police said, “Today’s arrest is part of the proactive work we are carrying out with Devon and Cornwall to ensure we take suspected County Lines offenders off our streets.
“Our work to remove these people from our streets and bring them to justice will continue on a daily basis and I would ask anyone who has information about this kind of activity to come forward so action can be taken.”
