Harrow police conduct multiple stop and search operations, 9 people detained

Headstone and Marlborough Safer Neighbourhood Teams (SNT) carried out several stop and search operations in the Headstone and town centre areas, as posted on the Harrow Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) Instagram page.

These resulted in the detention and search of nine individuals under Section 23 of the Misuse of Drugs Act.

Police confirmed that four out of the nine searches resulted in the recovery of cannabis and other drug-related items. This success was attributed to intelligence provided by local residents in the area.

The police noted the importance of adhering to drug laws, reminding the public that favourable weather conditions are not a valid excuse for possessing controlled substances.

The operation locations included Harrow Recreational Ground, Devonshire Road, and Harrow View.
