Officers acting under a search warrant raided a property in Tent Street, Bethnal Green also seized Class B drugs during the operation last Wednesday.

PC Richard Roberts, of the Metropolitan Police, said: “Protagonists in the supply of drugs in Tower Hamlets and those seen bringing drugs to the streets as a viable career option will only end up experiencing first hand our zero tolerance approach.’’

The suspect was bailed to return to Bethnal Green police station on September 9.
