Two Wirral men charged with drugs supply offences

Two men from Wirral have been charged with drugs supply offences.

Jack Hayes, 30, of no fixed abode and Shaquille Morris, 22, of Tranmere, have both been charged with being concerned in the supply of heroin and crack cocaine.

They have both been remanded to appear at Wirral Adult Remand Court on Friday, 22 December.

A spokesperson for Merseyside Police said, “Merseyside Police is committed to the Clear, Hold, Build partnership work and we are engaged with partners to rid our communities of organised criminal groups and to rebuild the areas that have been most affected by gang-related activity.”

The three-phase initiative, known locally as EVOLVE, uses a combination of targeted high-visibility police operations and covert policing tactics alongside activity from partners and input from residents to protect our communities and prevent organised crime groups from operating.

The strategy sees police ruthlessly pursue gang members using all available powers and tactics to clear an area; continue activity to hold the location, so another gang can’t take control in the vacuum; and then work with residents and partners to build the community into a more prosperous area where people would love to live, work and visit and one less susceptible to being exploited by organised crime groups.

EVOLVE projects are taking place in areas of Wirral, Liverpool, Knowsley, and Sefton. This is a long-term project and work will be continuous.

Partners involved in EVOLVE include Merseyside Police, Merseyside’s Police and Crime Commissioner, local councils, Merseyside Fire and Rescue, housing associations, health services, schools, colleges, Probation Service, local businesses, community groups and residents.

If you have any information about the supply of drugs in your area, you can call 101 or DM @MerPolCC on Twitter. Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
