They have been released from custody without charge, but remain under investigation.

The warrant was executed as part of work from Hampshire Constabulary on anti-social behaviour in the town centre.

Officers are keen to hear from anyone who is concerned about illegal drugs or drug-related crime in their neighbourhood.

Some of the signs to look out for include a sudden increase in visitors to a house or flat, people loitering in that area and people leaving a property on numerous occasions during the day, returning a short time later.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101.
