Officers on patrol in Maghull have arrested a man on suspicion of drug supply and recovered drugs following an incident in Maghull last night, Thursday 8 March.

At around 9.40pm, officers sighted a man in suspicious circumstances on Hall Lane and asked him to stop. The man ran off and was detained following a foot chase. A quantity of cannabis and cash was found and a further search of a house in Sefton Lane resulted in more cannabis and other items of paraphernalia being seized.
