Note in window leads to Class A drugs haul

A note in a window of a property in Birkenhead has led to the arrest of a woman after police found a large quantity of suspected Class A drugs.

The sign in the window read, “This is not a knock on. I smoke it, not sell it.”

At around 9.05am yesterday, officers executed a Misuse of Drugs Act Warrant on Newling Street. 

Sixty wraps of white and brown powder and a quantity of cash were recovered. 

A  57-year-old woman from Birkenhead was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cocaine and heroin and possession of criminal property. 

She was taken into custody and has been questioned by police and has now been released under investigation pending further enquiries. 

Sergeant McEvoy from the Wirral Targeted Policing Team said, “The arrest made by our officers yesterday show that we are committed to removing drugs and the misery that they cause from our communities across Merseyside.  

“Thanks to our work, a significant amount of drugs that could have been used to cause fear and harm is now off our streets.

“No criminal should profit from such misery while our wider law-abiding communities work hard to earn an honest living. If you know someone in your area involved in suspected drug dealing please let us know so we can take them off our streets.”

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