The July newsletter from the local police beat team includes reports on a drugs raid at a “property in Bradley Stoke” and speed checks in the Woodlands Lane area.
In April, police seized 25 suspected cannabis plants with a potential street value up to £25,000 and found electricity being illegally obtained at a house in Bradley Stoke. A Bradley Stoke man aged 24, a Bristol man aged 22, and a Portishead woman aged 23 were arrested and bailed pending further enquiries.
Police say they carried out a one-hour speed check in Woodlands Lane and Pear Tree Road, netting three drivers travelling at over 40mph. The offenders have been fined £60 and invited to attend a driving course to avoid three penalty points.
The newsletter also reports on a 21-year-old burglar, jailed for two and a half years by Bristol Crown Court after admitting more than 70 crimes in Bradley Stoke, Stoke Gifford and Little Stoke.
There’s also advice about dealing with anti-social behaviour (ASB), which police say usually increases over the summer.
By way of example, the police team cite the case of a 14-year-old boy who was being verbally abusive and aggressive to other teenagers and staff at local community facilities within the Bradley Stoke area. The youth was given a two year Anti Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) banning him from the skate park, Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre and the Willow Brook Centre.
