Police in St Albans issued a partial closure order at a house after two people were suspected of using drugs and owning a banned dog.
Before the order was issued at Buttermere Close, officers carried out a drugs warrant at the address at around 6am on Wednesday, October 10.
A man and a woman, both in their 20’s, were arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A and Class B drugs. A dog, suspected to be a pit bull, was also seized under the Dangerous Dogs Act.
St Albans East Neighbourhood Sergeant Mark Williams said: “We received a number of calls from residents and yesterday morning, we were able to act on that information. We have also seized a dog, which we suspect to be a banned breed.”
St Albans Neighbourhood Inspector Jon Roche added: “I’m really proud of the continued efforts my officers put in to making the district a safer place to live, work and visit. I would ask all residents to call the police to report suspicious activity or information relating to crime in an effort to combat drug supply and use. You are the eyes and ears of the police and we are reliant on the information you provide to support operations like this.”
The Closure Order is in place until January 2019 and only the tenants and one other named person can live at the property. A breach is of the Order is a Criminal Offence under Section 80 of the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014.
