A 41-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of drug offences after police spotted a car being driven dangerously in south Liverpool.
A woman driver tested positive for cocaine. The car was then searched and she was found to be in possession of over 1,000 containers suspected of being used to distribute cannabis.
The woman was arrested for drug driving and on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of cannabis.
An additional search of her house in Dingle was carried out. Police found a large amount of cannabis disguised as “legal highs” worth around £7,000-£8,000, a large quantity of money hidden in the fridge and drugs paraphernalia.
The woman was subsequently arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class B drugs and possession of criminal property.
Police released photographs of the drugs, some of which were inside “Smelly Proof” storage bags.
Sgt Steve Passey said: “This woman clearly thinks she is above the law by actively being involved in drug crime and driving whilst under the influence of cocaine, putting herself and others at considerable risk.
“It is pleasing to see a large amount of drugs being have now been taken off the streets of Merseyside and I would urge anyone that knows someone involved in drug crime or any crime for that matter to please get in touch so we can keep Merseyside as safe.”
