UK: Large cannabis factory found and Portsmouth CBD shop raided by police in city-wide drugs operation

Officers carried out six warrants today in a bid to stamp out narcotics operations across Portsmouth and elsewhere. Searches were carried out in Cosham, Southsea, Drayton, Fareham and Portchester as part of Operation Blue Island.

Police raided CBD shop on Albert Road which was expected to be involved in supplying illegal drugs. A warrant was executed at the premises and at an address in Nicholas Crescent, Fareham. Multiple kilos of cannabis plant and resin – alongside drug supply paraphernalia – were discovered and seized. Two people, a 41-year-old woman and a 40-year-old man – both from Fareham – were arrested on suspicion of importing and being concerned in the supply of cannabis.

They are both currently in police custody. Unconnected to this incident, police found a cannabis factory at an address in Havant Road, North End, containing 130 plants. Officers remain at the scene while forensic enquiries are being carried out. A further warrant was carried out at a property in Penrhyn Avenue, Drayton. Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary said they received reports linking drug offences at the address to a hairdressing salon in Portchester.
