Three people have been arrested and bailed after police seized £6,000 worth of heroin and cannabis from a Isle of Dogs home.

Officers from the Tower Hamlets Partnership Task Force swooped on an address in Dartmoor Walk with sniffer dogs to execute a search warrant on August 1.

Police said officers discovered a large quantity of what is believed to be heroin and a smaller amount of cannabis in a bedroom.

The drugs seized are estimated to be worth £6,000.

Two men, both 36, and one 18-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply.

All three were bailed until October pending further inquiries.

A dog was seized at the scene on suspicion of being a banned “pitbull”-type breed, and one of the men was also arrested for ownership of the dog.
