We arrested two people on suspicion of drugs supply on Sunday (30 June) after a car was stopped in Walton and drugs with an estimated street value of £100,000 recovered.

At around 9.15pm on Sunday (30 June) a white VW Passat car was stop checked on Walton Lane by offciers from the Matrix and Targeted teams.

The vehicle was searched and, with the assistance of a police dog - PD Hugo - four kilos of white powder was seized and taken for testing. The car was also taken for forensic examination.

A 60-year-old man from Walton was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

A property in Walton was later searched and a significant quantity of money was recovered alongside large quantities of Class A drugs, suspected to be heroin and crack cocaine.

A 55-year-old woman from Walton was subsequently arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and money laundering.

Both the man and woman arrested have been taken to police stations to be questioned.
