12:41pm Thursday 18th October 2012 in News
AN Eastham man was among 17 arrested for alleged drug offences following dawn raids across Merseyside today.
The 34-year-old was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply class A drugs after officers from the North West Regional Organised Crime Unit swooped as part of an investigation into a multi-million pound drugs conspiracy.
Fifteen men and two women have been taken to police stations for questioning by detectives.
Detective Superintendent Jason Hudson from Titan said: "Drugs are a blight on communities and can have a devastating effect on not only those who use them but on residents who witness drug related activity in their area.
"Today's operation demonstrates the ongoing commitment and dedication of Titan in tackling drug-related crime across the North West.
"We appeal to anyone with any information relating to serious and organised crime in their area to contact police so we can take rigorous action against them."
Anyone with any information is asked to call their neighbourhood policing team on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111. Alternatively, people can leave information via Titan's website on www.titanrocu.org.uk
