Stabbing after 16th birthday in Portsmouth

A 31-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman have been arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods and acquiring possession of criminal property.

PC Ian Hunter, from the Fratton, Baffins and Nelson Neighbourhood team who lead the warrants, said:

‘We know only too well how devastating drug-related crime can be on our communities in Portsmouth and that is why we are determined to take action to disrupt those who think Portsmouth is a soft target.

‘A lot of work has gone into planning these warrants and I’m pleased to say they proved to be a success, with two arrests and a large amount of cash and what we believe to be stolen property seized.’

‘It is important to remember we couldn’t do this proactive work without the support of our communities. You can help by trusting your instincts and making us aware of suspicious activity or concerns you have about vulnerable adults or children.

‘Your reports help us build a picture of where we need to target our action and by working together we can help tackle this problem.’

Hampshire Constabulary have urged anyone with information regarding suspected drug activity in their area to contact the police by calling 101.

A police statement said:

‘All information could help us catch and convict those who deal drugs in our neighbourhoods and even the smallest pieces of information can help us develop a clearer intelligence picture.’

The arrested pair are currently in custody.
