Two Arrests Made After Drugs Found In Grove Park
Police recover twenty-four bags of cannabis near railway station
Chiswick police have busted a drug-dealing duo who were caught in the Grove Park area.
Two males were arrested and twenty four bags of cannabis recovered by police after they spotted them while on bike patrol in the Park Road area near Chiswick Station last week.
The men, who are known to police, were arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs with intent to supply. They were released on bail as investigations continue. A police spokesman said it was a substantial amount of cannabis for the Chiswick area.
"Dealing or misuse of drugs will not be tolerated in Chiswick and any offenders will be dealt with robustly. They can expect a knock on their door from police,” he said.
The drugs operation will continue until Sunday (June 30)and is part of the local Safer Neighbourhood Team ‘s Summer Initiative to target a variety of criminal activity and anti-social behaviour.
The next strand of the Initiative will target street drinking. Officers say that anyone with problems relating to street drinking or any anti-social behaviour should get in contact with them.
“We need the public to give us information about any problems they are experiencing in their neighbourhood” he said.
Theft from vehicles continues to be a big problem in the Turnham Green ward. Incidents have increased in the last quarter (April to June) from 29to forty-five recorded thefts.
"We are continue to put resources into this problem and have made a number of arrests but we must appeal to the public not to leave anything of value in their cars. This also includes reminding them to switch off any bluetooth devices as this can alert would-be thieves," said a police spokesman.
The ASB (Anti Social Behaviour) Summer Initiative started on the 4th of June and runs until the 30th of September. It is designed to allow the police to tackle the constant problems that occur in certain areas.
There is an ASB surgery on August the 2nd at the church on Town Hall Avenue in Brentford. Members of the public are invited to come along and speak with officers about their concerns about ASB in Chiswick and Brentford.
