Six arrested in Class A drugs warrant in Shirley

We have carried out a warrant at a commercial premises on Shirley Road as part of an ongoing investigation into Class A drugs supply in Southampton.

Officers attended at approximately 2pm yesterday afternoon (Friday 3 May) and located a significant quantity of suspected Class A drugs.

We have arrested six people on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs – a 29 year old woman and five men aged 18, 22, 32, 34 and 44.

They are currently in police custody as we remain at the scene carrying out enquiries.

Yesterday’s warrant is part of our ongoing effort to target and disrupt the supply of drugs in Southampton. Drug supply exploits the most vulnerable members of our society and causes harm, violence and misery which is why we will continue to relentlessly pursue those involved.

Please let us know if you have any information about drugs supply in Southampton – you may not always see an immediate police deployment, but every piece of information you provide will help us work behind the scenes to build up a bigger picture, allowing us to take action.

You can report information to us by calling 101, visiting out website or by contacting the independent charity Crimestoppers online or on 0800 555 111.
