A ‘crackhouse’ in Stonebridge where drugs use was so rife that the pungent odour of heroin and crack cocaine filled the communal hallway has been closed down.
Neighbours to the flat in Mordaunt Road, where subjected to noisy rows, fighting and shouting from the constant flow of visitors to the property where they either dealt or took drugs around the clock.
When officers from Brent Police and Brent Council’s anti-social behaviour team raided the property they found drugs paraphernalia – the premises were empty.
Last week Willesden Magistrates Court issued a Closure Notice against the property.
Cllr Tom Miller, Brent Council’s cabinet member for stronger communities, said: “We have listened to our residents who tell us how important tackling anti-social behaviour is and this is another great example of working with the police to make our community safer
“Everyone in our borough has the right to enjoy living in their homes without experiencing nuisance. This must have been a very unpleasant experience for people living in the area and I am pleased that the people causing problems have been removed.”
