UK: Pledge to close 'cannabis cafe'
Tuesday 30 Aug 2005
Police in West Sussex are continuing their efforts to have a so-called
cannabis cafe in Worthing closed down.
Three people were arrested and bailed on suspicion of supplying a
controlled drug after 40 officers raided the premises in Victoria Road on
A large amount of what was believed to have been cannabis was seized, but
the cafe has since reopened.
Ch Insp Jason Taylor said they were working with the local authority on
finding ways of shutting it down.
"The anti-social behaviour act gives powers to the police to close premises
for Class A supply, so Class C is much more difficult," he said.
"Nevertheless we are working with other partners including the local
authority who have a wider array of powers that the police don't have.
"We're looking at those and we're working together to see what we can do to
close the premises."
Sussex Police said the raid was carried out following a number of
complaints from the public about anti-social behaviour.
