 Published on: 12th October 2018   |   By: Jason Allen   |   Category: Uncategorized

A closure order was issued by police at an address in St Albans on Wednesday morning after residents reported anti-social behaviour and suspected drug use at the property. 

Before the order was issued, officers carried out a drug warrant on the address in Buttermere Close at 6.40am. 

A man and a woman, both aged 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. 

Officers from the London Colney, St Stephens and St Albans East Safer Neighbourhood Team worked with officers from the Operation Scorpion team and Joint Protective Services, who were there to seize the dog.

London Colney, St Stephen and 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.”

The Closure Order is in place until January 2019 and only the tenants and one other named person can live at the property.

St Albans City and District Council provided evidence to help police to obtain the drugs warrant.  Principal Community Protection Officer Neil Kieran, added: “This is a great example of the close working relationship we have with the police.  The council will support action to make sure our properties are not used for drug taking or anti-social behaviour.”
