Four arrested after drugs raid on home

First published in News

Four people have been arrested after a drugs raid in Hampshire.

It comes after officers burst into a house in Solent Drive, Hayling Island following information received from the community.

Once inside the officers found suspected Class A drugs along with a large amount of money and drugs paraphernalia.

Three men, aged 17,46 and 27 and a woman, aged 55, were arrested at the address on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

They have all been bailed pending further enquiries until January 16.

PC Sarah Parkins from the Hayling Island Safer Neighbourhoods team said: “We want to send out a clear message to those that sell and use illegal substances that this behaviour will not be tolerated and we will continue to take positive action to stamp it out.

“Hayling Island is a very safe place to live and we want to keep it that way. We take all complaints very seriously and will continue to work closely with our communities.”

If you have any information about drugs in your community you should contact your local Safer Neighbourhoods team by phoning 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Seriously Echo how is this news over here?? There's a little thing called reporting, why don't you get your so called "reporters" to actually go out there and do their job rather than a bit of cut and paste from another papers website?

Thats made Britain safer, and a good way to spend police resources too.
I hope the legal system also finds a way to spend at least £50, 000 to process these people too.
Shame within 15 minutes of this raid another drug dealer filled the gap in the market.
Still if drug prohibition hasn't worked since the 1930's there is always the chance that this year it might!!

LOL I think they just may have cracked it - so that is the drug problem solved and we can all live happily ever after. Other drug users around the country beware - the police don't like you taking drugs and won't tolerate that kind of behaviour. The police track record is outstanding - they have been engaged in this battle for decades which speaks for itself, but it has kept them, the social services, the lawyers and barristers, the prison service, etc etc in work. You do the math.
