Merseyside Police work with partners to Tackle Drug Dealing and Antisocial use of Scrambler Bikes in Litherland

Merseyside Police has been working with the community and partners in Sefton to tackle organised crime, drug dealing and the antisocial use of scrambler bikes in the Litherland area.

During a week of action open land searches have been carried out together with searches of three addresses in Daley Road.

A 38 year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply and a 21 year-old female was issued with a cannabis warning.

A Volvo motor car was also seized and a 17 year-old male was arrested in possession of cannabis and wraps of cocaine and heroin and a large quantity of cash was seized.

Two scrambler bikes – a Yamaha and a Honda – were also seized.

Sefton Superintendent Dawn McNally said: “This is about working with the community and our partners to tackle organised crime, drug dealing and anti-social use of off scrambler bikes, which have caused a danger to road users and misery to residents of estates in Litherland.

“We are committed to removing these problems from our communities but we cannot do it alone. We need to know who are the people riding and storing these scrambler bikes. I want to assure the public that information supplied to us will be acted upon.

“The community can expect a continued police presence in the area over the next week and I would urge members of the community to contact the Police on 101 or the confidential Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 with any information which may assist us in tackling these problems.”
