Four arrested during Aldershot drugs raids

Two men and two women were arrested and held by police for questioning after two drug warrants were executed in Aldershot on Tuesday

Four people have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply class A drugs and conspiracy to launder money following drugs raids in Aldershot.

Two warrants were executed at addresses in Pegasus Avenue and Lancer Court on Tuesday (April 29) by officers from Hampshire Constabulary's economic crime team.

Two men, aged 35 and 39, and two women, aged 35 and 67, all from Aldershot, were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply class A drugs and conspiracy to launder money.

Police also seized a quantity of cash and drug paraphernalia.

Detective Sergeant Tom Bradshaw from the economic crime team said: "The supply of illegal drugs will not be tolerated in Hampshire and we seek to prevent anyone from making money from this activity which causes misery to the lives of others within our communities. 

"The warrants were executed as a result of information received from the public. We are keen to hear from anyone who is concerned about illegal drugs or drug-related crime in their neighbourhood."

DS Bradshaw advised residents to look out for the following warning signs:

  • A sudden increase in visitors to a house or flat and people only staying for a very short time
  • Short exchanges between small groups of people at or close to a flat or house
  • Residents leaving a flat or house on numerous occasions throughout the day and returning a short time later
  • People loitering in an area and using their mobile phones frequently
  • New-looking or hire cars parked outside a house or flat that wouldn’t normally be there, and being driven by somebody that you wouldn’t normally associate with driving that style of car

Anyone with information about drugs in their community should call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
