A property in Foulsham that was being used for illegal drug activity has been shut down.
The property in Bexfield Close has been at the centre of drug use and anti-social behaviour for several months, according to Norfolk Police.
Police worked closely with partner agencies, including Broadland Council, to address concerns from residents and sought a closure order after securing evidence of drugs misuse at the address.
Officers attended Norwich Magistrates Court on Wednesday, August 2, to seek a closure order under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.
The order was granted for a period of three months making it a criminal offence for anybody to be inside the property.
Inspector Robert Wicks of the Broadland OPT, said: 'We recognised that they had a duty of care of the wider community and despite several warnings and interventions with people attending the address, the activity did not decrease.'
