He has since been released on conditional police bail until Friday, June 21 while officers carry out further enquiries.

A spokesperson for Hampshire Constabulary said: "We will continue our efforts to target those involved in the supply of drugs.

"Our ask of communities is to continue to let us know if you have any information about drugs supply.

"You may not see an immediate police deployment, but any information you provide will help us work behind the scenes to build up the bigger picture and take the appropriate action.

"You can report this to us by dialling the 101 number, visiting our website, or via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
