Five charged following warrants executed in Kirkby and Croxteth

by Jonathan Kearney

Five people have been charged after six warrants were executed in Kirkby and Croxteth as part of an operation following recent incidents of disorder in Knowsley.

On Friday 10 February a police van was set on fire and missiles were thrown at officers facilitating an initially peaceful protest which turned violent at the Suites Hotel on Ribblers Lane.

Yesterday morning (Thursday 18 May) six warrants were executed as part an ongoing operation to prevent further incidents of disorder and crime where seven people were arrested.

Warren Cullen, aged 20 of James Holt Avenue, Westvale in Kirkby was later charged with violent disorder and two counts of possession of Class B drugs.

Liam Jones, aged 25 of Birkin Close in Kirkby, Harry Boynton, aged 19 and two teenage boys aged 13 and 14 from Kirkby were all charged with violent disorder.

All five have been conditionally bailed.

They will appear at Liverpool Magistrates Court on Tuesday 20 June.
