TWO men have been arrested after police stopped a suspected drugs deal in Litherland, which led to them finding more than 700 wraps of crack cocaine and heroin hidden in a car and a property.

A 51-year-old and 52-year-old from Bootle were detained after officers searched the car and found a bag containing wraps of crack cocaine and heroin.

A police spokesperson said: “Officers then carried out searches of two addresses where they recovered a substantial amount of drugs and cash.

“It is believed that over 700 wraps of crack cocaine and heroin have been recovered with over £2,000 in cash gained from criminal activity.

“This seizure has taken a significant amount of drugs off the streets that subsequently funds organised crime. Operation Pelican will continue with their relentless pursuit of criminals operating across south Sefton.”
