MIDLAND police say they are tackling an ongoing neighbourhood feud head on, saying all community members have a right to live in peace.
In recent days several search warrants have been executed, resulting in the seizure of drugs and other items of interest including off-road dirt bikes.
Several people have been charged.
Police said they will maintain a strong presence in the area to reinforce the message that anti-social and criminal behaviour will not be accepted, and will be responded to with force.
“From time to time tensions rise in specific communities, normally on the back of localised incidents relating to anti-social behaviour, or specific series of incidents linked to the same small number of anti-social community members,” a spokesperson said.
“This is currently being seen in the Midland area.
“Midland police are aware of the issue, and are tackling it head-on.
“Local officers are receiving support from other district-based officers and detectives, as well as from several specialist areas, either to assist with regular patrols, or to respond to specific situations.”
In any situation where a member of the public believes their safety, or the safety of others is at risk – they should call police on 131 444 – or if it is a life-threatening situation call 000.
