Police arrived on East Hill Road shortly before 08:30 and forced entry to a flat, surprising the occupant inside.
Today’s action is the latest in Hampshire Constabulary’s crackdown on the supply of Class A and B drugs within the local community.
Earlier this week officers conducted 2 raids in nearby Oakfield, arresting 3 individuals including a 14-year-old girl.
