Two arrested in Southampton on suspicion of drugs supply offences

We have arrested two people in connection with drugs supply in Southampton.


Last night (Monday 17 June) at around 9.20pm officers stopped a vehicle of interest in an ongoing drugs supply investigation in the north of the city.


A 39-year-old man from Southampton was searched under Section 23 of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 and suspected Class A drugs, Class B drugs and more than £700 in cash were located.


Shortly afterwards an address connected with the man was searched under Section 18 of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984, where further suspected Class A drugs and Class B drugs were found.



The man and a 23-year-old woman from Southampton were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A and B drugs. They remain in police custody at the current time as our enquiries progress today.


The arrest forms part of our wider work to disrupt the supply of drugs in Southampton.
