A Brownsover property connected with heroin and crack dealing has been officially ‘closed’ by police.

The address, in Grizedale, had also been associated disorder and serious nuisance for people living nearby.

The occupants were evicted and the house will remain boarded up for three months as of July 29 following the issuing of the ‘closure notice’ by the police and Rugby Borough Council.

Det Const Gary Hammond of Rugby CID said: “The closure notice came after months of hard work to collate evidence in relation to the case. We hope it sends out a clear message that we will continue to target those involved in drug-related activity and anti-social behaviour and deal with them robustly.”

Anyone with concerns about drug related activity in their area is advised to contact police on the non-emergency 101 number.
