Bexley police arrest 11 in crackdown on licensing law violations
POLICE in Bexley have made 11 arrests in a crackdown on licensing law violations.
Operation Condor caught two premises selling alcohol to underage youths after volunteer police cadets conducted test purchase operations at a number of off licenses and shops.
The borough-wide operation on September 13 and 14 also saw a car seized and arrests made for offences including ABH, possession with intent to supply, immigration violations and drink driving.
Inspector Paul Sanders said: "Licensing affects everyday community life and operations like this mean people do not sell knives in our shops and supermarkets or harmful substances or alcohol to young people.
"In our pubs and clubs it means alcohol is sold and consumed in a responsible way and on our roads that vehicles such as taxis are properly licensed and safe.
"These are just some examples of how licensing affects all of our daily activities and we will continue to commit resources to this and work extremely hard with our partners to tackle these areas in the future."
