This week the South West Neighbourhood Policing team (covering Kenley, Old Coulsdon, Coulsdon Town and Purley & Woodcote Wards) executed a Section 23 Misuse of Drugs Warrant at an address in the area following information provided by the public.
This was planned and executed with precision. Due to this well planned operation a suspect was detained at the scene trying to escape and was arrested for production/cultivation of cannabis and at this moment is in custody, pending a CPS charging decision.
Thank you to our neighbourhood policing team who have listened to our neighbourhoods and taken action to combat this criminal activity impacting our communities. Well done to all concerned.
