Police seize drugs and close property in Luton

6 Sep 2019

The Luton Community team carried out an intelligence-led warrant at a property in Luton on Wednesday (4 September) and seized a quantity of drugs, and secured a closure order.

Officers targeted a location in Lennon Court, Downs Road, which was believed to be used for illicit purposes.  

Following a search of the address, a large quantity of what are believed to be class A drugs was discovered.  

Officers also found machetes, knives, a quantity of cash and mobile devices.   The property was issued with a 24-hour closure notice and, following a hearing yesterday (Thursday) at Luton Magistrates' Court, a decision has been made to issue a full three-month closure order.  

PC Michael Trinder, from the South and East Luton Community team, said: “This successful warrant resulted in seizure of a large amount of drugs, which no can longer cause misery in our communities.  

“Tackling drug dealing and linked criminality remains our priority, and we would encourage people to come forward with any suspicions that this may taking place in their neighbourhoods.

"Each report matters, as it strengthens our intelligence picture of this type of crime.” 

Two men were arrested following this warrant and later released under investigation.
