Boscombe drugs house shut down as landlords urged to keep eye on tenants
A drugs house in Bournemouth has been shut down after a quantity of Class A drugs were seized.
On Thursday September 6, officers in Boscombe enforced a Misuse of Drugs Acts warrant at a flat in Churchill Road.
The closure order will be imposed for eight weeks, and anyone found in the property before the order has expired will be liable for prosecution.
East Bournemouth Chief Inspector Chris Weeks said: "This closure - which comes as a result of partnership working between Dorset Police, Bournemouth Borough Council, and the local community - is an excellent result for the residents of Boscombe.

"Working closely with local landlords and the community clearly works.
"I urge all landlords to look closely at the activities that are conducted in and around their properties, turning a blind eye is simply unacceptable. If a tenant is suspected of using drugs or involved in the supply of drugs please contact us."
Crack cocaine was seized from the property in Boscombe, just one of a series of clampdowns on illegal drugs in recent weeks in the area.
Boscombe Sergeant Billy Bulloch said: "The work we are doing to tackle drug offences in Boscombe has made an immediate and real difference to the area.
"Feedback from the local residents has been very positive. That said, there is still work to be done and I would like to reassure the community that our efforts to tackle these issues will continue.
"Dorset Police will take positive action against the individuals involved in dealing drugs and connected criminality."
