Detective Inspector Colin Stephenson of the Central Task Force said: “My officers in conjunction with Havering Borough and Territorial Support Group (TSG) have seriously disrupted an organised criminal network dealing in drugs, counterfeit currency and ammunition, that doubt would have been destined for those eager to make a profit.

“We are committed to dismantling these criminal networks and today’s seizure demonstrates the Met’s drive and continued focus on disrupting the supply of Class A drugs and firearms on the streets of London.”
