Drugs warrant executed at Stratford home

CONCERNED residents raised the alarm about alleged drug suppliers, leading to police executing a warrant.

Officers on Thursday (September 7) seized drug paraphernalia and mobile phones from a house in Childs Close.

A 22 year-old man from Stratford, who has not been named, was arrested at the property on suspicion of assault following a separate incident at the house on August 30.

Sergeant Simon Ryan said: “Information from the public helps us to build up a picture of the issues affecting our communities and target those responsible.

And officer Dominic Bes-Jeary hopes those with information about potential crimes will get in touch.

He said: “We take seriously every single piece of information that the public gives us. While we can’t always respond directly to every report, the information our communities provide helps us to target individuals and specific problems, and to shape our wider policing plans.

“We will be continuing policing activity in and around Stratford and I’d encourage anyone with concerns to let us know.”

Anyone with information can call 101 and speak to police or ring 0800 555 111 to speak to Crimestoppers anonymously.
