Four people arrested following drug warrant in Aldershot

Police have arrested four people following the execution of a drugs warrant in Aldershot.

The warrant was carried out on Thursday, April 3 at a property on Upper Union Street.

A 35-year-old man from Aldershot, a 24-year-old woman from Aldershot, a 43-year-old woman from Tiverton in Devon and a 43-year-old man from Tiverton in Devon have been arrested on suspicion of possessing a Class A drug. They are currently being questioned by police.

The warrant was executed as part of the Operation Fortress campaign.

Operation Fortress is a campaign with police and other agencies to reduce the harm of drug-related violence. One of the aims is to restrict the supply of class A drugs and officers are keen to hear from anyone who is concerned about illegal drugs or drug-related crime in their neighbourhood.

The things to look out for are as follows:

*       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.

If you have any concerns, call police on 101 or 999 if a crime is in progress.
