Seven arrests in major police drugs operation as search continues in Thornhill
Updated 10:59am Sunday 22nd June 2014 in News
Police are today continuing to question seven people arrested as part of a major drugs operation in Hampshire.
The four men and three women were arrested as police searched woodland on the outskirts of Southampton.
Officers swooped on three addresses - in Thornhill, Botley and Portsmouth - as part of the anti-drug crime drive Operation Fortress.
The seven suspects, who are aged between 17 and 50 and are all from Hampshire, are currently being questioned by police.
A Hampshire Constabulary spokesman said: “The search is a line of enquiry to locate potential evidence linked to illegal drugs and substance misuse across Hampshire.
"We would like to reassure local residents and visitors that there is no threat to their safety. This specific search is not looking for suspects or human evidence."
Operation Fortress is a Daily Echo-backed campaign attempting to crack down on drug-related violence in the city.
