Five people were arrested yesterday after officers revisited addresses targeted during Operation Ohio.
Operation Cleveland ran alongside London-wide Operation Big Wing - a 12 hour campaign by the Metropolitan Police - including police officers from Safer Neighbourhood Teams with around 40 of Newham Council’s enforcement and Section 92 officers.
They visited 276 premises issued notices during the 48 hour anti-social behaviour crackdowns working their way around the borough.
Arrests were made for cannabis possession, perverting the course of justice, and handling stolen goods.
Officers also found a firearm at one of the addresses, Class B drugs, and a stolen Freedom Pass meant to provide free travel for the elderly and disabled.
