THIRTEEN people were arrested last week as part of an investigation into drug supply across Lancashire and the rest of the UK.
The arrests were made last Thursday across Lancashire and Merseyside in a series of co-ordinated strikes.
Officers executed warrants at various addresses in Banks, Rufford, Hesketh Bank, Southport, Heysham, Bootle, Walton, Liverpool, Croston and Lostock Hall.
Among those arrested was a 30-year-old man from Banks, a 34-year-old man from Hesketh Bank, a 33-year-old man from Skelmersdale, a 43-year-old man from Skelmersdale and a 36-year-old man from Skelmersdale.
They were all arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A and Class B drugs.
They were bailed pending further inquiries after they were interviewed by police.
Detective Chief Inspector Neil Ashton, of Lancashire Constabulary s Serious and Organised Crime Unit, said: The raids are part of an ongoing investigation into the activities of a suspected organised crime group and a drugs supply chain that has seen cocaine and cannabis being moved across, and sold in, Lancashire, Merseyside and Scotland.
Lancashire Constabulary is committed to tackling organised crime and we would ask communities to help us in doing this.
