A man has been evicted from a house in Derby after numerous calls to reports of drug dealing, anti-social behaviour, and weapons.
Officers were called more than 100 times about a host of criminal activities at the house in Harriet Street, Normanton, over the course of 18 months.
During that time officers attempted to engage with the man at the address, however, were forced to apply for a closure order at court last week due to the ongoing impact on those living in the area.
Sergeant Ben Frearson, who leads the safer neighbourhood team in Normanton, said: “The eviction of someone from their home is not something that is done lightly, however, in circumstances such as this we are left with no other choice.
“For some time, the house has been at the centre of numerous incidents which have been of concern to residents – as well as officers – and I hope this sends the clear message that we will not tolerate this type of behaviour.
“In cases such as this it does take time to see this type of result, however, it is absolutely vital that we are updated with information about addresses where this type of behaviour is taking place in order to form the body evidence that we need to put before the court.”
