Police commissioner dishes out £712,000 to groups after ‘protecting’ budget amid political row

Have your say

SIX people were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in supplying Class A drugs after police forced their way into a home.

Officers carried out a drugs warrant at a home in Soberton Road, Havant, just before 5pm on Thursday.

Once inside they found a quantity of what are suspected to be Class A drugs, although this had not yet been confirmed.

Three men aged 35, 44 and 43 from Havant, a 19-year-old man from London and two women aged 31 and 30 from Havant were arrested

They have been released on bail until September 2.

PC Darren Woolvin of the Leigh Park Safer Neighbourhoods Team said: ‘We want to send out a clear message to those that sell and use illegal substances that this behaviour will not be tolerated and we will continue to take positive action to stamp it out.

‘We take all complaints very seriously and will continue to work closely with our communities.’

Anyone with information about illegal drugs in their community is asked to contract their local Safer Neighbourhoods team by phoning 101.
