St Albans Det Insp Alex Warwick said: ““We have a zero tolerance to drugs in the St Albans district. No one should have to live near someone involved in the supply of drugs as it can have a negative impact on people’s lives.

“Those dependant on drugs are often also involved in acquisitive crime, like burglaries and car crime, to feed their habits, so it is really important for residents to let us know when they see people calling at an address at unusual times of the day or night, can smell cannabis or suspect that drugs are being supplied.
