Inspector Matt Reeves from the Stockton Neighbourhood Team said: “We will always listen to concerns raised to us by those residents who are impacted by tenants’ disruptive behaviour in our community.

“Antisocial behaviour or criminality in any form will not be tolerated and this was quickly dealt with to help improve the lives of those living nearby.

“This is a fantastic example of great partnership work between the Force and Thirteen and we will continue to work together to tackle any suspected drug activity in the community.”
