Residents in Kempston applauded officers from the Bedford Community Policing Team, as they completed the execution of a drugs warrant on Thursday (16 July).
Following complaints from the community, the address in Stafford Court, Riverside Road was searched by Police who have secured a closure order on the property for three months.
Two men and a woman were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply drugs, and a quantity of wraps, believed to contain heroin and crack cocaine, were seized.
All three have been bailed.
Inspector Samantha Hunt, from Bedfordshire Police’s Local Policing team said, “Acting on reports from residents concerning drug use and anti-social behaviour at the address, we have arrested three people, successfully secured a full closure order and taken a quantity of drugs out of circulation.
“It was heartening to see the reaction from neighbours who have endured criminality and anti-social behaviour on their doorstep.
“We will now work with the courts and the local authority to prevent further reoccurrence.
“Drugs are a blight on people’s lives. Reports from the local community are vital to help us to build a better picture of the issues in the area, and prioritise action to combat criminal activity.
“Please report any concerns you may have about your neighbourhood, as it really does make a difference.”
