Shortly before 8am yesterday morning (Thursday 12 October), officers executed a proactive drugs warrant at an address in The Quadrangle, Eastleigh.
Upon gaining entry to the property, a 40-year-old woman and an 18-year-old man were both present inside the address.
A number of items were seized, including Class B drugs and offensive weapons. The individuals present are awaiting interview in connection with the discovery.
Following the execution of the warrant, officers’ enquiries remain ongoing.
The warrant was led by officers from the Eastleigh Priority Crime Team, and supported by officers from Hedge End Neighbourhood Policing Team (North), Eastleigh Neighbourhood Policing Team (Central) and Criminal Investigation Department.
Eastleigh District Commander, Chief Inspector Matt Paling, said: “Drug-related activity will not be tolerated in our communities. Warrants, such as this one, are just one of the ways we can tackle the problem.
“We will continue to relentlessly pursue and deal with those who are causing harm in our town.
“But of course, as we often say, we can only do what we do with the support and help of the community itself.
“The information we receive from the public is vital to us being able to carry out warrants and tackle illegal activity across Eastleigh.
“Please continue to let us know of drug-related activity in the area in which you live, so we can allocate our resources to effectively and robustly deal with it.”
If you witness any illegal activity where you live, please report this to us by calling 101, visiting the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Constabulary website, or by calling Crimestoppers, anonymously and in confidence, on 0800 555 111.
