Police drug raid in Widnes

Police drug raid in Widnes

26th October 2017

A Police raid took place at a property in Widnes last week, in which drugs and drug paraphernalia were seized from the property and an individual was arrested by Cheshire Police. Due to the raid that took place and the subsequent arrest at the property, Halton Housing served a Section 21 notice to the tenant of the home in which the raid took place for allowing illegal activity to occur in their property. This resulted in the tenant relinquishing their tenancy. The customer now has 28 days-notice to vacate the property.

Mark Harvey, the Tenancy Services Manager at Halton Housing said:

‘Halton Housing are taking a tough stance on anti-social behaviour and illegal activity in our homes, where the concerns of our residents are supported by factual evidence. Halton Housing work closely with Cheshire Police and the Local Authority to keep our neighbourhoods’ safe. We hope that the events that occurred highlight to our customers how committed to tackling anti-social behaviour in our neighbourhoods’ we are, and illegal activity in our homes will not be tolerated. We urge anybody who has any concerns relating to drug related illegal activity or anti-social behaviour in our homes to report it to us via our Customer App, or Live Chat on our website.’

Halton Housing hope the course of action they have taken in this instance will send out a strong message to their customers, that they will not tolerate anti-social behaviour in their homes.

The Police investigation in to the drug related activity in the property and individuals involved is still ongoing.
