Police Swoop in Operation Hawk
Acting on Local Information by Residents
Operation Hawk is a renewed emphasis on Safer Neighbourhoods teams tackling local crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour by responding to local community intelligence. This includes executing warrants on addresses that police have received information on. Having received information from several residents, Police obtained two Section 23 Misuse Drugs Act warrants from Feltham Magistrates court. The first warrant was executed on Thursday 26th January at an address in Lionel Road North and two bags of cannabis were found, along with cash believed to be the profits of drug dealing, along with a set of small scales. The male at the address was arrested for possession of cannabis and later interviewed, fully admitting the offence. He has subsequently been charged and bailed to court
The second warrant was executed in College Road, Isleworth, using a variety of officers from Safer Neighbourhood Teams. This was less successful as police only found a cannabis joint. The male residing at the address was issued a Penalty Notice and fined £80 for the possession of cannabis.
Officers from Brentford and Chiswick sector will continue operation hawk and action any information received by our local community. Residents can also give information anonymously to crimestoppers if they suspect any criminal activity.
