Men charged with Class A drug supply offences

Merseyside Police has charged two men and arrested a third in Birkenhead at the weekend as part of Project Adder, which combines targeted and tougher policing with enhanced treatment and recovery services.

The scheme, supported by £11.76m in Government funding for the Liverpool City Region over the next two years, aims to cut drug-related crime and reduce misuse.

Sean Lavin, 30 years, of Phillip Street, Chester was arrested on Saturday 21 August and later charged with possession with intent to supply Class B drugs, possession of a false document, and possession of Class A and C controlled drugs. He was remanded in custody to appear at Liverpool Crown Court on Monday 23 August.

A man was stop searched on Stanley Road on Friday 20 August when wraps of white powder and a baton were seized. David Holdgate, 18 years, of Palatine Road, Bromborough was charged with possession of a Class A controlled drug and possession of an offensive weapon. He was bailed to appear at Wirral Magistrates Court on 11 October.

A 36-year-old man from Tranmere was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A and B drugs after cocaine and cannabis was recovered during a warrant at a house in Birkenhead on Saturday. He was released under investigation while enquiries continue.
