POLICE on the Isle of Wight have teamed up with Royal Mail to tackle the supply of Class A drugs being sent through the post.

The pre-planned investigation was carried out by the Newport Neighbourhood Policing Team and the Dog Unit.

The objectives of the operation were to target the supply of class A drugs coming to the Island through the postal service, while enhancing the training of the dogs in this line of work.

A spokesperson for the Hampshire Constabulary said: "An effective response to drugs networks and county lines demands real collaboration.

"Hampshire Constabulary works closely with other agencies in both the public and private sectors, as well as the local community, to tackle the supply of drugs."

Those with information about the supply of drugs in their area are asked to contact the police by dialling 101.

Alternatively, you can report it anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
