Police acting on local intelligence in drug busts in Kensington

Some good news for local people this week in Kensington from our local police sergeant who always keeps us updated with their work.

Following Community Intelligence police entered an address on Sheil Road, L6. There they found a number of addicts and a male supplying drugs. Approximately 30 wraps were found and a male was arrested. He has been bailed while the drugs are sent away for analysis.

Following community intelligence police executed a Misuse of Drugs Act Warrant in Berwick St, L6 and recovered a small cannabis farm. Two people were arrested and charged with cultivation of cannabis and abstracting electricity.

They have asked that if any local people have any information, to let them know and they will deal with it as expeditiously as they can. You can also come directly to your councillors if you would prefer.

The good relationships that people in Kensington and Fairfield have developed with the police, particularly through the Community Safety and As One Task Group is really bearing fruit now. Thanks to the public-spirited residents for coming forward and the police for acting on local concerns and tip-offs.
