A suspected drugs den in Luton has been shut down thanks to the efforts of Beds Police.

Luton Magistrates Court granted the closure of a flat in Ruthin Close, Luton, yesterday after hearing evidence from police of it being used to supply drugs.

Two men, aged 19 and 37, were arrested and bailed pending further enquiries.

Sgt Richard Cunningham said: “This is yet another success for our team. Since the launch of Op Sentinel the team have clamped down on numerous locations used for drug supply and as brothels.

“We want to send a strong message that we treat anti-social behaviour seriously and won’t tolerate it in our neighbourhoods.”

Anyone with information in relation to the supply of illegal drugs can contact police, in confidence, on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
