Community Safety

Councillor Krishna Suresh commended the Police, for their swift and urgent action in capturing the criminals

Harrow Police have arrested three men and seized a large quantity of Class A drugs with a street value of £30,000 in total from an address in Edgware.

Drugs including a large quantity of heroin, cocaine, over a kilo of cannabis and ammunition were found from an address in Orchard Grove in late October. A specialist police team were later called in and they discovered a taser stun gun – a prohibited firearm –a knife hidden in the garden, at the premises.

 

Inspector Tanya Sprunks, in charge of Harrow neighbourhoods said:

 

“As a result of our pro-active police operation, these men were caught red-handed with a big quantity of class A drugs and illegal weapons. Once they realised we were on to them, they tried to get rid of the evidence by flushing some of the drugs down the toilet – which, unfortunately for them, did not work. We will continue to work with our partners in the borough to crack down on the supply of illegal drugs across Harrow and London, which can and often does, fuel further violence and exploitation.”

 

Councillor Krishna Suresh, Member for Crime and Community Safety at Harrow Council said:

 

“The Council will continue to work jointly with the police to clean up the borough and bring the perpetrators of these kinds of crimes to justice. As the police investigation is ongoing, I would urge anyone with further information to contact the police directly – any information they receive from the public will be completely confidential. We jointly need to tackle these kinds of anti-social behaviour issues in our community head-on, as they can lead to gang related crime. I commend the police for their swift and urgent action.”
