Three people have been arrested during a drugs raid at an address in Seymour Close Portsmouth today (Wednesday 30 August), where a quantity of class A drugs were found.
A 39-year-old man of no fixed address was arrested on suspicion of conspiring to supply a Class A controlled drug and a 19-year-old man and a 53-year-old man, both from Portsmouth, were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.
Police are keen to hear from anyone who is concerned about illegal drugs or drug-related crime in their neighbourhood.
The things to look out for are as follows:
A sudden increase in visitors to a house or flat and people only staying for a very short time.
Short exchanges between small groups of people at or close to a flat or house.
Residents leaving a flat or house on numerous occasions throughout the day and returning a short time later.
People loitering in an area and using their mobile phones frequently.
New-looking or hire cars parked outside a house or flat that wouldn’t normally be there, and being driven by somebody that you wouldn’t normally associate with driving that style of car.
