TWO men have been arrested on suspicion of supplying Class A drugs in a Hampshire town.

Police swooped at 6am today, executing simultaneous, pre-planned drug warrants in New Milton and seizing a large quantity of cash and drugs in the process.

A police spokesman said he raids were carried out on the Doe Copse Estate.

He added: "We have no doubt helped to disrupt a potential supply chain of Class A drugs.

"Officers searched properties in Fawn Gardens and on Antler Drive and seized a quantity of Class A drugs and cash from one property, and a sum of money relating to suspected supply of Class A drugs at another address.

"A 24-year-old man and a 23-year-old man were both arrested on suspicion of being involved with supplying Class A drugs.

"They remain in custody at this time as we continue to conduct our enquiries.

"Local neighbourhood policing teams and PCSOs will be patrolling the area, conducting house-to-house enquiries and offering reassurance to the local community."

Sergeant Kat Smith is based in the Lymington and New Milton area.

She said: "Drug dealing of any kind will not be tolerated and anyone involved in these offences can expect robust action to be take.

"These warrants are only possible when the community provide us with the information – we want to see results, holding people to account for their actions and bringing them to justice.

“If you have reported suspicious activity to us, please be reassured that our neighbourhood team are working in the background to develop information so that we can obtain a warrant from the magistrates to conduct this activity.

"We are grateful for the cooperation of the local community in these instances.
