A static caravan on a Bodedern farm has been cordoned off by police after it was allegedly used as a brothel.
Police raided the property at Manaw Farm earlier this week, when evidence emerged of prostitution and human trafficking offences.
Caernarfon magistrates granted a three-month closure order on the caravan on Friday, having previously permitted a 48-hour notice. The court heard that the offences had occurred over a ‘prolonged period of time’.
Detective Sergeant Andrew Davies said: ”This order demonstrates that we have listened to the concerns of those living in the locaility 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.”
”We will continue to take action against those who engage in such activity and in doing so, disrupt the lives of others within the community.”
Last week, two men and a woman were arrested as part of an investigation into modern day slavery on Anglesey. The suspects were released on bail but are still under investigation.
A North Wales Police spokesperson added the closure order was made under Section 79 of the Anti Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. It’s issued when magistrates are satisfied that the property is being used in connection with criminality.
