An estimated 80 kilos of suspected cannabis has been seized in south Tottenham.

Police discovered the alleged drugs - which are thought to have a street value of about £240,000 - following a stop and search carried out officers from Haringey’s Priority Crime Team on Tuesday afternoon.

The officers found two blocks of what they believed to be cannabis when the searched a 25-year-old man in Walton Road.

They later searched the man’s address where they found about another 160 blocks.

The 25-year-old and a 39-year-old man, who arrived at the address while officers were in the building, have been arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cannabis.

A 51 year-old woman was also arrested at an address in Finsbury Park area on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cannabis in relation to the 80 kilo seizure.

All three remain in custody at a north London police station.

Haringey Borough Commander Sandra Looby said: “A significant amount of drugs has been taken off our streets as a result of targeted use of stop and search. Drugs are known to be linked to other forms of crime, with users often committing offences to fund their habit on route to carrying out drug deals. There are also significant health issues involved in drug use and we work with our partners to ensure that people are referred to appropriate support services.

“We will continue to work to tackle illegal drugs and the related anti-social behaviour and crime issues that matter to local residents. We will do this with professionalism and integrity, with the targeted use of stop and search where appropriate being a valuable tool to make our streets safer.”
