Detective Inspector John Hazeldine, who leads Welwyn Hatfield’s Local Crime Unit, said: “We are continuing our investigations into the anti-social behaviour experienced at Woodhall shops, the town centre and the reported drugs activity.”
He added: “We will not tolerate drugs use in Welwyn Hatfield and are working hard to drive it out. Through our own investigations and information from the public, we can work together to keep Welwyn and Hatfield safe and I would therefore strongly encourage people to always report suspicious activity and anti-social behaviour to us should they come across it.
