“This makes people feel unsafe in their homes and we won’t tolerate it.

“We target areas with known drug problems and patrol in plain clothes and unmarked cars looking for criminal activity.

He urged anyone who witnesses suspicious activity to report it here or alternatively by calling police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
