Searches of the properties remain ongoing this morning.

All five have been taken into custody where they will be questioned by detectives.

Detective Chief Inspector Allison Woods said: “Our work remains ongoing to target the people responsible for serious and organised crime including drug supply.

“We have a proven track record in dealing with individuals who are responsible for the wholesale supply of illegal drugs both locally and across the country, as well as the use of violence to protect their business interests.

“We have been working closely with partner agencies and neighbouring police forces to target the people who are responsible for bringing misery to our streets.

“I can reassure the communities of Merseyside that the force will continue its fight against those involved in serious organised crime to make our communities safer.”
