Police in Hackney raided an underground car park on Crondall Street in Hoxton and found 270 kilos of Cannabis with street value of £1 million.
Yesterday (Monday 9) plain clothes officers entered the underground car prk after a tip off from “a concerned member of public” and as a result of enquiries, a 31 year old man was arrested on suspicion of supplying drugs and remains in custody at Hackney police station.
In a nearby lock-up, officers found a large quantity of cannabis resin and herbal cannabis in cling wrap in five large laundry holders, two holdalls and several shopping bags.
There was also a set of scales and a heat wrap machine with extra cling wrap.
A vehicle at the scene was searched and a further block of cannabis resin found.
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.”
