Sergeant Pete Goodchild from Tokyngton Safer Neighbourhoods Team said: “The value of the goods is quite amazing and it means a large amount of money has now being diverted away from criminal activity. We plan to conduct more of these operations in the near future.
“This was a great piece of partnership working with our colleagues at Brent Council.”
