Lancashire police report that members of the Fulwood Neighbourhood Policing Team recently executed warrants under the Dangerous Dogs Act.
A warrant was taken out on the 23 June 2014 at an address on Grange Avenue in Ribbleton, Preston, with the second being on 25 June 2014 at an address on Oakworth Avenue in Brookfield in the city.
A Pitt Bull dog was seized by officers at each address. Police report that both dogs are currently at secure kennels and awaiting to undergo the relevant identification process.
Once identification has taken place police will take the relevant action against the owners of both dogs.
The police say this is another example of strong community links between members of the local community and Police. They would like to remind local residents that they can report suspected dangerous dogs by contacting Preston Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
