We have arrested a Portsmouth man on suspicion of drugs offences in Southsea.
At approximately 11pm on Tuesday 26 April we received a report that two men had been seen attempting to break into cars in the Rodney Road and Devonshire Avenue area.
Officers were deployed to the area and located two men matching the descriptions provided to us. They were stopped and searched under Section 1 of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act.
One of the men was released with no action being taken against him. The second man, aged 18, was found to be in possession of suspected drugs.
He was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of Class A. He remains in police custody at the current time.
A subsequent search of a property that he was connected to revealed a significant quantity of suspected Class A drugs.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind people to please report suspicious activity to us. Every report helps us build up a clearer picture of what is happening and helps us tackle crime in your area.
