Premises closure – Milton Keynes
15 May 2012, 10:43 am
Thames Valley Police, working in partnership with the Milton Keynes Council Intervention Team, served a Property Closure Order on a property in Milton Keynes on Friday (11/5), preventing the tenants from returning to the address.
The property in Buckby, Tinkers Bridge, Milton Keynes, was immediately secured and everybody removed from inside. The closure was made possible due to direct information from the public and the residents of Tinkers Bridge, who worked closely with the partner agencies throughout the investigation.
The closure order was granted by Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court, after they found that significant and persistent anti-social behaviour had occurred at the address.
A number of incidents were outlined in statements from PC Jim Adams, which clearly showed serious anti-social behaviour over a period of two years at the address, including drug abuse and threatening behaviour towards other residents.
The order will stay in place for three months.
Neighbourhood Supervisor, PC Jim Adams, said: “This closure order has allowed us to deal with the severe anti-social behaviour that was directly linked to this address. It should serve as a warning to other residents who behave in an anti-social manner that the police will take all necessary action to ensure the quality of life for members of the public.
“I would like to pay tribute to the residents of Buckby that have assisted in this investigation despite numerous threats made directly towards them. It is due to their determination and persistence that we have been able to deal with the issues and put an end to the anti-social behaviour that was affecting every resident.”
