This is the haul of drugs seized by police after they broke into a car used by a suspected dealer in Poplar.
Officers filmed themselves using a baton to smash the rear window of the black vehicle parked in Woolmore Street yesterday.
An officer then retrieved the bag filled with cannabis and suspected class A drugs.
A total of 55 bags of cannabis worth around £1,100 and five filled with a white power were recovered in the operation.
The one-minute clip was uploaded on to the Poplar Safer Neighbourhood Team Twitter account with this message for the owner of the unregistered car: “@MPSPoplar have found your #cannabis - If you recognise this exhibit, the good news is Matt & Mick will be seeing you soon! Everyone else can follow the Poplar Twitter account to find out what happens next...”
There have been no arrests.
