Man charged after Hampshire Police drugs raids
11:15am Thursday 30th January 2014 in News
Police have charged a man following the execution of drug warrants at three addresses in Hampshire.
The warrants were carried out on yesterday at addresses on Hearsey Gardens, Blackwater.
Michael King, 54, from Hearsey Gardens in Blackwater has been charged with possession with intent to supply a Class B drug.
He has been bailed to appear at Aldershot Magistrates Court on February 13.
A 20-year-old man from Blackwater and a 20-year-old woman from Farnborough were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of a Class B drug.
They have been bailed pending further enquires until March 7.
The warrants were executed as part of the Operation Fortress campaign which aims to restrict the supply of illegal drugs.
Officers are keen to hear from anyone who is concerned about illegal drugs or drug-related crime in their neighbourhood.
The things to look out for are as follows:
• A sudden increase in visitors to a house or flat and people only staying for a very short time
• Short exchanges between small groups of people at or close to a flat or house
• Residents leaving a flat or house on numerous occasions throughout the day and returning a short time later
• People loitering in an area and using their mobile phones frequently
• New-looking or hire cars parked outside a house or flat that wouldn’t normally be there, and being driven by somebody that you wouldn’t normally associate with driving that style of car.
If you have any concerns, call police on 101 or 999 if a crime is in progress.
