Boys arrested for dealing

Two teenage boys - including a 14-year-old - were arrested last week suspected of dealing cocaine and cannabis.

At 7.30am on October 7 the Dollis Hill Safer Neighbourhoods Team, supported by the Met's 24-hour response team and Dog Section, raided a flat in Mackenzie House, Ainsworth Close, Dollis Hill.

A 14-year-old boy, a 17-year-old boy and a 22-year-old man were arrested for possession with intent to supply cannabis and cocaine.

All three have been bailed pending forensic examination.

Bigger fine for fare dodgers

Passengers who fail to pay to travel on the transport network will be slapped with a £50 fine from early next year.

From January 11 2009, penalty fares on buses, Tubes, DLR and London Overground will increase from £20 to £50 - but reduces to £25 if paid within 21 days.

Fare evasion costs Londoners £70 million a year.

In 2007 Transport for London issued around 110,000 penalty fares - many nabbed by more than 500 revenue officers deployed throughout the transport network.

Cop on burglary charge

Soloman Henry, 24, from Islington, was charged with aiding and abetting misconduct in a public office and a Data Protection Act offence, by obtaining personal information without permission of the data controller.

Both will appear on bail at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court on October 23.
