FOUR men charged with conspiracy to supply class A drugs after a series of raids in Portsmouth have appeared in court.

Robert John Hoadley, 33, of East Shore Way, Portsmouth, Simon Peter Smith, 44, of Wymering Lane, Portsmouth, Jonathan Nigel Palmer, 37, of Highgate Road, Portsmouth, and Adam Bradley Derry, 32, of Raymond Road, Portsmouth, are each charged with conspiracy to supply a class A drug.

They were bailed by Portsmouth magistrates yesterday.

The men will appear at Portsmouth Crown Court on November 10.

Hampshire police last month executed a number of warrants at homes and businesses in the city under Operation Fortress.

Officers seized £50,000 in cash and a significant quantity of controlled drugs during the investigation.

Six further people charged with conspiracy to supply a class A drug are due to appear at Portsmouth Crown Court on November 10.
