“Merseyside Police will not accept it, and we will continue to stop people, stop cars, and execute warrants and land searches to apprehend offenders and remove drugs and ill-gotten cash from circulation.

“If you have knowledge on drug traffickers operating in your area, please come out with it and we will take action.”
