Police shut down Foulsham property linked to drug activity

A property in Foulsham that was being used for illegal drug activity has been shut down. The property in Bexfield Close has been at the centre of drug use and anti-social behaviour for several months, according to Norfolk Police.

Police have worked closely with partner agencies, including Broadland District Council, to address concerns from residents and sought a closure order after securing evidence of drugs misuse at the address.
Officers attended Norwich Magistrates Court last week (Wednesday 2 August) to seek a closure order under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. The order was granted for a period of three months making it a criminal offence for anybody to be inside the property.
Inspector Robert Wicks of the Broadland Operational Partnership Team said: “We recognised that they had a duty of care of the wider community and despite several warnings and interventions with people attending the address, the activity did not decrease.”
