Crime hotspot house closed down by police in Warrington

Police in Warrington have secured a closure order following reports of drug abuse, disorder and crime at a property in Bewsey and Whitecross.

The property on Troutbeck Avenue has been shut down by officers following the securing of a closure order under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 from Warrington Magistrates’ Court on 14 March.

The order will run for three months and is a direct result of officers responding to the concerns of residents regarding the behaviour at the property including violence, damage and disorder.

The occupant has since been ordered to leave the property and find alternative accommodation, with all windows and doors being secured for a period of three months. Anyone who enters the address during that time will be committing a criminal offence and could be arrested.

Beat Manager PC Sigourney Murphy, from Warrington Central Beat Management Team said:

“The residents were living in fear and were afraid to leave their homes because of the level of anti-social behaviour and crime caused by the occupant. This closure will significantly improve their quality of life and further demonstrates our commitment to deliver even safer communities.

“I want to urge anyone with concerns about ASB or other criminality in their community to please contact local officers and we will do everything we can to address these issues and achieve justice.”

Anyone with concerns about anti-social or suspicious behaviour in their area is asked to report it to Cheshire Police via the Cheshire Police website or call 101
