£25m Cocaine Haul Found Locally

The Metropolitan Police have confirmed that packets of Cocaine, worth an estimated street value of £25m, have been found on a trading estate in Hartlip.

The packets were found in plastic bananas contained within a consignment of real bananas from Colombia.

Scotland Yard has confirmed to SFM News that 150kg of the drug was found following an "intelligence-led" operation. Entry was forced into a unit on The Oast Park Trading Estate on Spade Lane in Hartlip.

It is believed that the lorry driver was not implicated in any way.

Officers say that the bananas arrived at Dover at about 06:00 BST yesterday (Thursday 10th July) morning and were then taken to the warehouse.

A 48-year-old man was later arrested locally and Met officers also arrested three Colombian men, aged 36, 39 and 46, outside an internet cafe in Stockwell, South West London.

Their investigations continue.
