A 30-year-old woman from Southampton has been arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A and Class B drugs and receiving stolen goods.

It comes after officers from Southampton’s High Harm Team carried out a proactive stop and search in Back of the Walls Street on Friday, 5 March, which led to a drugs warrant at an address in Briton Street later the same day.

A large quantity of drugs and cash were seized along with a number of phones and items associated with drugs supply.

The 30-year-old woman was questioned by officers and released from custody, but remains under investigation.
