POLICE raided properties in Liverpool in the fight against County Lines drugs supply into North Wales.

Merseyside Police officers carried out two warrants in Liverpool on Monday (October 11) and made three arrests, following an investigation into County Lines drug dealing into North Wales and Hampshire.

This was part of the ongoing Project Medusa, a Merseyside-led initiative set up to tackle County Lines drug dealing and child criminal exploitation.

Those arrested include a 34-year-old man and 24-year-old woman from the Fairfield area of Liverpool, and a 19-year-old man from Fazakerley.

Inspector Gary Stratton said: “Organised crime is hugely damaging to our communities, often involving intimidation, violence and creating fear and it is these criminals who run County Lines. Criminals involved in organised crime have no thought for anyone other than themselves, and their criminal intent and greed.

“Project Medusa is dedicated to cutting these County Lines dead and as this investigation has shown, regional boundaries do not matter. We work with partners in other forces to trace those organised criminals responsible and help those who may be exploited by these gangs.”
