Drug dealing

Reported via iOS anonymously at 18:54, Sun 8 July 2018

Sent to Epping Forest District Council and Essex County Council less than a minute later


You cannot fail to notice the extraordinary amount of drug dealing taking place outside 55 Bakers Lane, Epping. During busy periods, numerous vehicles stop at this location, a lone male will come out of a nearby address, lean into the car window and an exchange can be seen taking place. Also, people on foot come to this location, just to reiterate, the street OUTSIDE NUMBER 55 BAKERS LANE EPPING and exchanges of small items of property can be seen taking place. Quite often, the same people can be seen visiting the location repeatedly throughout the day, usually just spending a minute or two before making off after a transaction has taken place. The police have abandoned Epping now, having sold the police station hence reporting this on here. Just to make it clear the drug dealing is taking place outside 55 Bakers Lane Epping. I don’t know how the residents put up with that outside their house.....

  • I am fairly sure this is a county lines hub and am considering reporting anonymously to the police. Records show it is also council housing they can therefore be evicted. But as they drive a ford mustang that should be no problem

  • The dealing seems to be getting worse rather than better. The dealer can often be seen leaving his house and carrying out a transaction through a car window - the cars now often waiting for the dealer at the rear gated entrance to Baker's Villas at the corner of the M&S car park. I would implore local people to report every incident of suspicious behaviour to the police so that the dealer can be evicted and hopefully convicted.
