“With drugs such as cocaine, heroin, MDMA, crack cocaine, LSD, ecstasy and cannabis seized from the vehicle, needless to say the male was subsequently arrested for possession of controlled substances with the intent to supply and could be looking at some lengthy prison time,” they added.

Police yesterday told how they had found a man hiding in a wall cavity as they busted a cannabis farm in Crookes.

Earlier this week, a drug dealer was jailed after being caught with 90 wraps of cocaine.
