A Wiltshire property has been closed for three months after reports of “drug use and disorderly behaviour".

On Thursday, May 23, police were granted a partial closure order by Swindon Magistrates' Court for an address in Devizes, under Section 80 of the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act.

For the next three months, anyone found in the property, other than the tenants, can be arrested and “dealt with robustly” for breaching the order.

This comes after regular reports of anti-social behaviour and drug use in the area.

A spokesperson for the force said: “Hopefully this closure order will bring some much needed respite to the residents in the locality who are often affected by the anti-social behaviour and ongoing issues associated with the address.

“Officers will continue to patrol the area to ensure the order is being adhered to.”

There are now four closure orders currently being enforced in the town.

Police have urged anyone who believes an address is being cuckooed or used for criminal activity to report their concerns.

Officers say this community intelligence can be used to target drug dealers, tackle anti-social behaviour, and safeguard vulnerable people.

A spokesperson added: “You can report your concerns by calling 101.

“Alternatively, you can call CrimeStoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
