Police have arrested three teenagers on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

The arrests come as part of a County Lines investigation with detectives from the force’s Project Medusa working with colleagues from West Mercia Police to investigate the supply of Class A drugs between Merseyside and Shrewsbury and Whitchurch.

A warrant was executed at a property in Liscard on Tuesday morning and a quantity of suspected Class A drugs have been seized.

The three males, all aged 19, are currently in custody where they will be interviewed by detectives.

In a statement yesterday, Detective Inspector Gary Stratton said: “Today’s warrant and arrests are just one example of the proactive work we are carrying out on a daily basis on the streets of Merseyside to tackle organised criminal gangs involved in County Lines drug dealing.

“We will continue to work with our colleagues in neighbouring forces to target these gangs and bring those responsible for the supply and distribution of drugs to justice.”
