Operation Hawk took place last Thursday (September 20) as part of the offensive and a BB gun was also seized.

Safer Neighbourhood Officers led the action and 14 search warrants were executed in Bexley cannabis farms, crack houses and suspected drug dealers at houses and businesses were targeted.

Bexley borough commander Ch Supt Victor Olisa said: “Be assured that we will bring together our resources to reclaim and help areas affected by street drug dealing.

“We will use community intelligence to deliver swift results and tell people what action has been taken.”

Two people have been arrested for drug-related violent crimes and 10 were arrested through executed warrants.

Other activities included giving presentations and working on drug education in schools.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
