Arrests follow another Brockley drugs raid

Lewisham Police's increasingly hard-line stance on drug crime in Brockley - which has produced recent raids on a number of local businesses - has produced more arrests. A statement issued today reads:

Brockley Safer Neighbourhoods Team in partnership with officers from the Territorial Support Group executed a warrant at an address in Cranfield Road SE4 on the 16th October 2012.

This was as a direct result of information received from concerned local residents. Officers detained two men at the address and found a quantity of what was believed to be Class A drugs (heroin) (cocaine) and (MDMA) during the search. The men in their 20s were arrested for possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and taken to a South London Police Station. They have been bailed pending further enquiries.

Police Sergeant Jon Biddle of Brockley Safer Neighbourhoods Team said: "This operation proves once again that I will target drug dealers on my ward. Drug dealers are a blight to our community and this sort of crime affects the community because of the associated anti-social behaviour and criminal activity. If you have information that can help to reduce crime, please contact your local Safer Neighbourhoods Team as soon as possible."
