Officers from the Chichester Neighbourhood Policing Team assisted by the local support team executed a drugs warrant at a house in Reed Close, Hunston, at 9.15am on Tuesday (October 29).

The drugs and a quantity of cash were seized.

Two people were arrested at the address.

Paul Hoque, 19, of no fixed address, was charged with possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply.

He appeared at Chichester Magistrates’ Court the following day and was remanded in custody to appear at the same court on Friday, November 22.

A 36-year old woman was also arrested on suspicion of supplying Class A drugs.

She was released on police bail until Saturday, December 14 while enquiries continue.

PC Martin Price, from the Chichester Crime and Operations Team, said; “We will continue to robustly target individuals suspected of bringing class A drugs into the Chichester area.

“We will also work closely with partner agencies, including social landlords, against anyone who allows any such dealers to use their properties.”
