Drug dealing near you?

Drug dealing near you?

Dear residents,

Would you know what the signs are that one of your neighbouring properties may be being used to sell drugs and possibly exploit a vulnerable person? Here are some signs to look out for.

  • If vulnerable people live close by and you notice more and more people suddenly living at their address, it could mean a drug dealer has taken over their home͘.
  • Are people coming and going at odd times of the day and night?
  • Are there strange smells coming from the property?
  • If the windows of the house are covered or have the curtains closed all the time.
  • Are cars pulling up to or near the house for a short period of time͘?
  • If someone appears to be living beyond their means and enjoying a lavish lifestyle, but aren't earning the means to finance it, they could be making money from drug dealing.
  • Drug dealing groups often target young vulnerable people to deliver their drugs and collect the cash. Look out for youngsters with large amounts of cash or lots of mobile phones - usually cheap pay-as-you-go types.

If you have any concerns or suspicions you can call 101

You can also pass on information anonymously to the independent charityCrimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Please if you suspect something maybe happening, let us know so we can act.

Thank you.
