Police have arrested four men after cannabis, suspected cocaine, and MDMA tablets were found at a house in Greasby on Thursday, 16 May.

At around 4pm officers spotted a man on an electric bike on New Hey Road who rode away from them when he noticed their vehicle. Officers stopped the man and found a block of cannabis resin in his bag.

The 19-year-old man from Greasby was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to sell class B drugs.

Officers then searched an address in Greasby where three men were found in the living room surrounded by cannabis, suspected cocaine and MDMA tablets.

Officers also found jars and bags of cannabis, a quantity of white and red powder, and scales in the house.

Two 18-year-olds and one 48-year-old man from New Brighton and Liscard were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to sell class A and B drugs.

 They were all taken to a police station in Merseyside where they remain in custody.

Detective Inspector Phillip Ryan said, “Thanks to the vigilance and alertness of our officers, we have recovered several amounts of cannabis, cocaine and MDMA tablets from inside the address and arrested four men.
