A week of action lead to five arrests, four warrants, two vehicles being seized and one person being charged with theft offences in Hinckley.
Between Monday 5 December and Thursday 8 December, four addresses were targeted as a result of concerns around anti-social behaviour in the area.
Of the five arrested, 24-year-old Sian Warner, was charged with two counts of theft from a store in Brunel Road and Castle Street, Hinckley.
She appeared at Leicester Magistrates’ Court and was released on bail.
On Monday 5 December, a car was stop checked in Wykin Park, Hinckley, and two people were arrested – a man on suspicion of breach of order and a woman for failing to appear to appear at court. The car was also seized for no insurance.
Two warrants were executed and a small quantity of cannabis was recovered. One person was spoken to in connection with this discovery.
On Tuesday 6 December, one man was arrested on suspicion for failing to appear at court and was taken to Leicester Magistrates’ Court to be dealt with.
A 29-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of theft from a store in Clifton Road, Hinckley, on two occasions. He was released on police bail pending further enquiries.
On Thursday 7 December, a small number on cannabis plants were recovered from an address after the execution of a warrant. Enquiries are ongoing in relation to this incident.
A warrant was executed in Hinckley and a quantity of drugs was recovered. A 47-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply and bailed, pending further enquires.
On the last day of action, three people were stop checked in the area.
Inspector Dan Eveleigh, from the Neighbourhood Policing Area, said: “This clearly visible work is on-top of all the ongoing work by local officers. The result of these warrants and five people being arrested is a great result for the week of action undertaken in Hinckley.
“The action has disrupted the supply of drugs in the area, and brought one person before the courts.”
A council spokesman for Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council said: “Following the successful execution of a number of drug related warrants by Leicestershire Police, we will now be looking at tenancy enforcement action, where appropriate.
“The Endeavour partnership remains committed to tackling anti-social behaviour affecting our communities. We will not tolerate anti-social behaviour, and we want to assure local communities that they do not have to put up with anti-social behaviour which can have devastating consequences for those exposed to it.”
