Four arrests in Manor Park drug crackdown
Four people in Manor Park have been arrested following a new police crackdown on drugs and gangs.
Around 35 officers from the Safer Neighbourhoods Team, Safer Transport Police, and the guns and gangs unit raided six addresses in the Little Ilford ward as part of Operation Bricklin on February 29.
A 21-year-old man was arrested and charged for possession of cocaine, a Class A drug, and he was bailed to appear at Thames Magistrates Court in March 2012.
Another 21-year-old man was arrested for possession of cannabis with intent to supply after police discovered a quantity of herbal cannabis and drugs paraphernalia at his address. He was bailed to an east London police station in April.
At a third address, a 25-year-old man was arrested in connection with an allegation of handling stolen goods and a 19-year-old man was also arrested for possession of cannabis with intent to supply and possession of an imitation firearm.

All drugs warrants were issued as part of Operation Bricklin, launched to tackle drugs and crime in the borough.
Chief Inspector Guy Wade of Newham police said: “Several addresses were targeted as part of a series of ongoing operations to target local criminals.
“Local residents can expect to see greater police activity to combat drug-dealing. In fact, a crack house was closed in the week following.”
