2. CRACK HOUSE CLOSURE: Police have officially closed a house in Caswell Close, after a Crack House Closure Order was granted by magistrates under the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003 on Wednesday, July 18. The order means that no-one can use the property for three months and during this time, it is a criminal offence for anyone to enter the house unless authorised by police. The closure follows a series of early morning raids at addresses in Farnborough in May, as part of an operation to target perpetrators of anti-social behaviour and drug abuse. Inspector, Paul Pressley, said: “We are committed to making neighbourhoods safer and more pleasant places to live. The supply of drugs affects the quality of life for everyone, particularly those living close by to where the activity is taking place.
“This latest premises which has been subjected to a Crack House Closure is the result of close working with police, residents and the local authority to ensure a quality of life for those living not only in Caswell Close, but the whole of Farnborough.”
