Cannabis success for local police


As a result of intelligence received from the local business community , as well as proactive work by your Safer Neighbourhood Team , we have today just uncovered a substantial “cannabis factory” inMaple Road.

With a crop of approx 100 plants ready to go, worth thousands of pounds to the criminals intent on supplying them, this seizure represents a huge blow to the criminal network operating in the area.

The address is currently a guarded crime scene, whilst we await it to be made safe by the electrical company.

Once safe, our forensic experts will scour the premises for clues to establish who was growing the plants. I am hopeful of some arrests in the near future.

“Operation Hawk is a renewed emphasis on local Safer Neighbourhoods teams tackling local crime problems with local community intelligence, and so we urge the public to tell their dedicated policing teams about who is committing crime or disorder in their area. Community intelligence passed to us will be dealt with as quickly as possible and carefully considered before, and if, any action is taken, and we will then tell communities what action we have taken to address these issues. While communities are likely to see more operational activity from their local Safer Neighbourhoods teams, their actions, together with continued engagement will still be addressing local crime priorities with the overall objective of cutting crime and making London safer.”

Kind regards
