Pub where stash of cocaine was found could close for good

Pub where stash of cocaine was found could close for good

by Tom Martin (October 2021)

A PUB in Waterloo which was the target of a recent drugs raid by the police could soon be forced to close.

Officers carried out a search of The Railway pub, on Brighton Road, last month, and found a large amount of cocaine and more than £45,000 in cash.

Merseyside Police have now requested that Sefton Council review its licence.

Following the raid, police arrested two men, aged 50 and 42, and a woman, aged 34, on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

A 60-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and handling stolen goods.

As a result, Merseyside Police asked the borough council to decide if the pub should remain open and a Licensing Sub-Committee meeting will be held tomorrow (Thursday, October 14) when a decision will be made.

According to council documents, the police believe that “the premises are associated with serious crime” and that in their opinion there is a “significant risk to public safety.”
