Maesgeirchen flats closed in drug crime crackdown

North Wales Police

Police have closed four flats on Bangor’s Maesgeirchen estate.

Caernarfon magistrates granted closure orders for the flats at Plas Glyndwr on Thursday (7th February) because they were being used for drug-related crime.

Two of the flats, owned by Cartrefi Cymunedol Gwynedd, will remain out of bounds for the next three months. Only police and CCG officers will be allowed to enter.

The named occupants of the other two properties on Tan y Bryn Road will be allowed to stay.

Neighbourhood police officers told the court there was evidence that drug-related anti social behaviour had occurred at the four flats over a prolonged period of time.

Inspector Joe Aspinall said detectives regularly found themselves attending Plas Glyndwr ”day and night” amid concerns from residents.

He added: ”This order demonstrates that we have listened to the concerns of those living in neighbouring properties and it sends out a message to those individuals who wish to engage in acts of criminality within the community, that their actions are having a major impact and disrupting the peaceful lives of innocent members of the public.”
