Merseyside Police make over 500 arrests in crackdown on organised crime

Merseyside Police have arrested 547 people, seized over 100 vehicles, and executed 125 warrants which has led to several firearms being recovered as part of Operation Miller targeting serious and organised crime across Liverpool City Region.

A total of 13 firearms have been found in areas across Liverpool and a significant amount of drugs have been seized.

During the operation there was a total of 14 stop searches,  six drug wipes and two vehicles seized.

Earlier this week (Wednesday 7 September) officers also took part in a day of action that targeted suspected organised criminals in Wirral.

Chief Inspector Peter Clark said:

“Arrests like these means we can disrupt the activity of criminals and assist in proactive policing operations such as Operation Miller, through which we pursue and prevent organised crime groups across Merseyside.

“We hope these rising figures show our commitment in targeting anyone involved in drugs and serious crime.

“We will continue to target and disrupt criminals, who are destroying our communities, and remain committed to removing drugs and dangerous weapons across Merseyside.

“Any information we receive is vital in our ongoing investigations to tackle the root cause of serious and organised crime and we are acting on all the information we receive.”

If you have any information on organised crime or weapons or drugs stored in your area please DM @MerPolCC or call 101. Alternatively, if you do not want to speak to police, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
