A SUSPECTED drug dealer has been charged after a huge stash of heroin and crack cocaine was seized during raids by police.

Search warrants were executed at addresses on Sidings Court in Fairfield, off Manchester Road, and St Elphin’s Close in Howley on the afternoon of Tuesday, May 19.

Officers discovered a ‘large amount’ of class A drugs and cash inside the two properties.

Kingsley Molyneux, of St Elphin’s Close, has since been charged with possession of heroin and crack cocaine with intent to supply in connection with the raid.

The 27-year-old appeared before Warrington Magistrates Court yesterday, Wednesday, in order to face these charges.

He will now be brought before Chester Crown Court next month, and has been remanded into custody until that date.
