After raiding the house, police discovered drugs, a fake gun, and have taken one person into custody under investigation for multiple offences.

The courts have granted a closure order on the property, meaning that anyone who enters the house in the next three months will be committing a criminal offence. Thames Valley Police is working with housing organisations to look at repossessing the property.

In a post on social media, TVP Aylesbury Vale thanked the community for continuing to provide intelligence on criminal behaviour.
