Caernarfon property closed off by police

A Caernarfon property has been closed off by police following violent disorder.

Police issued a closure notice on the address in Cefn Cadnant on Thursday amid complaints about drug-related anti social behaviour.

Officers said there was evidence that behaviour linked to the property was having a detrimental effect on both the estate and its residents.

The closure was ordered by Superintendent Nigel Harrison while Grwp Cynefin has secured the premises to stop anyone from re-entering. The Western Area commander for North Wales Police said: ”Drug related anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated and we will continue to work with our partners to identify and close problem premises.”

Only the tenant of the address and staff from the local housing association will be allowed inside for a certain period of time.

Sergeant Non Gibson at Caernarfon police station said: ”This will stop certain individuals from frequenting and using the property and causing a nuisance to others. We ensured that the persons found in the property this morning were assisted in removing their personal belongings and they were given advice regarding support services for homeless people.”

A number of young families with small children live on Cefn Cadnant – a designated housing association estate. One resident said: ”Cefn Cadnant is going to be a safer place for our children now. We have had to endure the comings and goings from this address so I am pleased to have seen this action taken.”
