POLICE officers have arrested two local men on suspicion of drug supply offences in Eastleigh.

A red Renault Clio was stopped on Blenheim Road at around 1.50pm yesterday after the vehicle had been drawn to officers attention, following information provided by the local community around drug-related activity.

Officers were acting on a tip-off from the local community.

On searching the vehicle Class B drugs were located, along with a number of counterfeit bank notes and other drug paraphernalia. These were all seized along with two mobile devices.

A 22-year-old man and a 20-year-old man, both from Chandler’s Ford, were arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class B drug with intent to supply.

They have since been released under investigation, pending further police enquiries.

A spokesman said: "Information that we received from the community is vital and informs where we put our resources and take action against any illegal activity.

"If you, or anyone you know, suspects that an address in your neighbourhood is being used for drug dealing, drug-related activity or associated crime, then please called us on 101."
