Eight People Charged With Drugs Offences After Titan’s Biggest Ever Drugs Seizure

Eight people from around the North West who were arrested yesterday in connection with a £12 million drug seizure have now been charged and will appear at Halton Magistrates Court in Runcorn this morning (Monday, April 8, 2013).

An investigation led by TITAN (the North West Regional Organised Crime Unit) led to the biggest drug seizure since the unit started in 2008 after officers recovered what is believed to be cocaine.

Supported by the South East Regional Crime Unit, the Serious Organised Crime Agency and Border Policing Command, a co-ordinated operation led to a van being stopped in Chelmsford, Essex on Saturday afternoon (April 6) and two men being arrested.

Six further arrests took place in Lancashire, Cheshire, Greater Manchester and Liverpool, and all eight were subsequently interviewed and charged.
