Luton Drugs Den and Brothel Shut Down
A suspected drugs den and brothel has been closed down in Luton.
Officers carried out a warrant at the address in Villa Road on Thursday (16 April) following concerns raised by residents.
The premises was empty and the electricity had been bypassed. Officers worked with energy provider EON to make the connection safe and a dog was seized under the Dangerous Dogs Act.
A three-month closure order was secured at Luton Magistrates’ Court on Friday (17 April).
Inspector Jason Cahill said: “This is another example of police acting on concerns raised by members of the public and dealing with the issue.
“Crack houses and brothels bring with them a variety of associated criminality and anti-social behaviour which blights neighbourhoods and can make people’s lives a misery.
"We will continue to work with our communities to identify issues and protect people from crime."
