House off Leeman Road raided during day of action
11:55am Wednesday 4th September 2013 in News
POLICE raided a house in York in a search for drugs and a crackdown on antisocial behaviour.
They entered a house in Carnot Street, off Leeman Road, as part of a “day of action”.
North Yorkshire Police said drugs were not found at the house, but they obtained intelligence and hoped it showed the community they would act on intelligence proactively.
Officers worked with the local community to offer crime-prevention advice, marking property as well as recruiting more people to Neighbourhood Watch and a scheme to tackle antisocial behaviour.
Insp Neil Drummond said: “This day of action on York west indicates how seriously North Yorkshire Police views the quality of life for residents and visitors to North Yorkshire and the city of York.
“The aim of the day is to highlight to the public that this is daily business for North Yorkshire Police and highlights the diversity of our work.”
