A property in Fulham has been shut down for three months after it was identified as a crackhouse.
The closure order was granted by Fulham Magistrates’ Court on May 21 for a property on Everington Street, which has been secured and will remain closed until August, police said.
Anyone caught entering the premises will be arrested by the police for breaching the closure order.
Chief Inspector Simon Causer said: “This operation is a great example of the council and police working together as a result of valuable community intelligence being shared with the Fulham Reach Neighbourhoods Policing Team.
“With the support of the local community we are able to get great results like this. Drugs, antisocial behaviour and all associated crimes are not welcome in this borough and we will continue to use the full weight of the law to take action.”
The order was granted under Part 4 of the new Antisocial Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014, which came into effect on October 20 last year and enables agencies to tackle place-specific antisocial and criminal behaviour in a faster and more effective way.
This closure forms part of the Met’s long-term strategy to tackle and reduce violence with injury and anti-social behaviour across London under Operation Equinox.
