Million pound drug seizure made in car park

Cannabis siezed in Hackney pic: Met Police

A 31-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of supplying drugs after police seized 270 kilos of cannabis with a street value of over one million pounds.

Following a tip off from a concerned member of the public, uniformed officers went to an underground car park in Crondall Street on Monday.

The drugs were found in a lock-up nearby and an arrest was made.

The man remains in custody at a police station in Hackney.

They found a large quantity of cannabis resin and herbal cannabis in cling wrap. A set of scales was also discovered as well as a heat wrap machine.

A further block of cannabis resin was found after a vehicle at the scene was searched.

Detective Inspective Rhys Willis, from Hackney Borough’s Operation Bantam, said: “These drugs were clearly being stored to be divided up and sold on and this is a good seizure for Hackney police that has taken a substantial quantity of illegal substances off the streets.”
