Drugs arrests in Becklow Gardens‏

On Wednesday 13th January Askew Safer Neighbourhoods Team, Hammersmith & Fulham Drug Squad, officers from the Territorial Support Group and dog section executed a warrant at an address in Uxbridge Road, W12 near to the junction with Becklow Gardens.

Intelligence was gathered on the address and as a result of this a warrant to enter and search the premises/occupants was granted by a local court.

A total of five arrests were made at the venue including:

  • 21 year-old male for Possession with Intent to supply drugs and money laundering offences

  • 22 year-old male for suspected Possession of a Class B Drug, cash was also seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act

  • 24 year-old male for suspected Possession of both Class A & Class B Drugs

  • 30 year-old male for Immigration Offences

A further 50 wraps of suspected Class A Drugs were found hidden in a communal area, total street value of the seizure believed to be in the region of £2,000. Enquiries are still ongoing.

PC Gethin Jones from the Askew Safer Neighbourhoods Team said, " This is a substantial find amongst a group of local males, which has caused misery to the local residents and businesses.  Our actions will hopefully prevent further drug dealing taking place on the streets of Shepherds Bush as well as reducing Anti-Social Behaviour."

I think I speak for all of us when I say this is fantastic work - and huge credit to the police for this excellent result.
