Gang members causing anti-social behaviour (ASB) in the South Acton Estate have been sentenced to more than 35 years collectively.

Over the last five months, officers from Trident’s Central Gangs Unit, Ealing’s Gang Unit, South Acton Safer Neighbourhoods Team and the Local Policing Team have been tackling gang violence, drug dealing and ASB in the South Acton Ward under Operation Peltra.

Warrants were carried out across London including in Ealing, Harrow, Hounslow and Hillingdon, 17 arrests were made and the offenders had over 80 offences between them.

Of those arrested, 16 were charged and pleaded guilty to offences including possession with intent to supply class A drugs, being concerned in the supply of class A drugs or for actually supplying them.

Detective Superintendent Tim Champion, Trident Central Gangs Unit, said: “This is a great example of the proactive work Trident conducts with local boroughs to tackle violent gang members involved in the supply of harmful drugs.

“By successfully removing the negative role models and their gang associates we are hoping to prevent young people from joining gangs in the first place.

There is nothing fashionable about having a criminal record. It only makes it harder to get a job or into further education .”

Sergeant Sean Snaith from South Acton Safer Neighbourhoods Team said: “Since the conclusion of this operation The South Acton Ward team has seen a dramatic decrease in drug related crime and anti-social behaviour within the ward.

“We recently attended the South Acton Ward Forum in order to update the residents of South Acton prior to the defendants being sentenced and this was met with positive feedback.”
