A samurai sword, knives and cannabis were found in a police search.

Two men were arrested during the warrant execution in a property at The Hollies, Potters Bar, last week Thursday (April 22).

Officers swept the place and seized cannabis, a large quantity of cash and knives, and a samurai sword.

A man, 21, was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in supplying a controlled drug and possessing an offensive weapon.
