Early Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 4am - 6:30am
Wraps of heroin and crack cocaine worth around £1,200 have been removed from Southampton streets thanks to information from the public and the work of local police.
Officers from Southampton’s Tasking Team carried out warrants and searched two properties in Bevois Valley Road yesterday after receiving complaints from local people about anti-social behaviour and suspicious activity in their road.
Two 19-year-old men from London, a 49-year-old man from Southampton and a 33-year-old man from Southampton were all arrested on suspicion of supplying Class A drugs. All were released on bail pending further enquiries.
Det Constable Scott Spafford who led the operation, said: “Thanks to good information from the public calling in with concerns about suspicious activity happening in their street we were able to make enquiries, make arrests and take dangerous drugs off the streets.
“This shows how important the publics’ help is in making Southampton safe. Your information is vital and if you have any concerns about drug dealing in your neighbourhood let us know. We take drug dealing very seriously and we will act on your concerns.”
Anyone with any information or concerns about drug dealing should contact their local police station on 101 or you can contact Crimestoppers the charity anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
