Crack, cannabis and heroin seized in huge police operation across London
Crack houses, cannabis farms, and suspected drug dealer’s homes were raided as part of a huge police operation across London this morning.
Under the crackdown, involving more than 1,000 Metropolitan Police officers, 11 cannabis factories were discovered and more 1,057 plants were seized.
Half a kilo of heroin with a street value of more than £50,000 was found at a flat in Tottenham, while 19 rocks of crack cocaine were seized at an address in Brent.
Officers are continuing to carry out more than 800 activities across the capital, including testing for drugs on surfaces at pubs and clubs and visits to pharmacies to check for under-the-counter prescribing.
As of 9am, a total of 53 arrests had been made during the execution of 46 warrants during Operation Hawk.
