Police bust on Porthampton drug dens

Police raided eight properties across Porthampton in the early hours of this morning in the culmination of a three month operation undertaken as part of Porthampton police’s “War on Drugs” campaign.

The raids which took place at approximately 4:00am saw drugs officers from across the region seize drugs including cannabis, cocaine and heroin with a street value of up to £250,000.

Police removed lamps and other equipment for the growth of super strength cannabis as well as chemicals used in the production of heroin. Other chemicals used in the extraction of cocaine from spices thought to have been imported via the Porthampton ferry port were also found.

In total 15 men were arrested in connection with the ongoing investigation.
