11:00am Thursday 10th October 2013 in Crime
POLICE investigating a £1.3m seizure of cocaine in Hampshire have carried out another raid at the property where it was discovered, police say.
Officers from Hampshire Constabulary, working with the newly formed National Crime Agency (NCA), raided premises in Curdridge Lane, near Bishop’s Waltham.
It was part of a string of raids across Hampshire taking place as part of Operation Archery, a larger investigation into the production and supply of class A and B drugs.
A Hampshire police spokesman said: “These latest raids are a follow-up to a warrant executed in Curdridge in August where cocaine with a street value of £1.3m and a large cannabis factory was discovered.
“Officers also dismantled a large well-established cannabis factory at the location.”
Related raids were also carried out in Bishop’s Waltham, Curdridge, Havant and two in Portsmouth.
As a result six people were arrested on suspicion of being involved in the supply of class A and B drugs.
They are a 30-year-old man from Bishop’s Waltham, a 47-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman both from Curdridge, a 76-year-old woman from Havant, and a 34-year-old man and a 32-year-old man both from Portsmouth.
