Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police


On Friday 24th May 2019 a section 23 misuse of drugs act warrant was executed in Poppyfields, Bedford.

This warrant was executed following reports and intelligence from members of the community. Receiving this information helps us to be able to get these warrants.

How a warrant works:
- To obtain a warrant to get in and to search a property, intelligence is needed from several different sources, relating to the drug issues believed to be happening in the specific property.
- Once the intelligence is gained, a lengthy application is filled in, detailing all this information.
- This application is then sent off to the magistrates court for them to see if they can authorise it.
- A date is then set out for officers to speak to the magistrates, which is sworn under oath.This is to confirm what the application is about and to answer any questions they may have.
- Once successful, a date needs to be confirmed where officers can execute this.
- Once the planning is complete, we are all ready to execute the warrant to get the great results we have been getting in our area!

Please continue to send in any information.

Kind regards,
