Eagle-eyed Special Constables on patrol in Greenwich have found a large amount of cannabis hidden in two empty Pringles tubes.
The officers were on patrol near to a children’s playground in Mulgrave Road at around 20:00hrs on Tuesday, 5 January.
The special constables were supporting the Woolwich Dockyard Safer Neighbourhoods Team and, acting on local information, the officers came across the two hidden tubes stuffed with 15 bags of cannabis.
Special Constable Robert Burvill-McIver said: “Acting on information provided to us by concerned locals we were able to find the hidden drugs. We have deprived a drug dealer of their stash and made the area safer for the local community. I would urge anyone with any concerns about drug dealing in the area to get in contact with us.”
Chief Inspector Darren Cox said: “We do not tolerate drug dealing and we will take every opportunity to deprive criminals of their illegal gains. At this stage no arrests have been made and enquiries are underway to identify those responsible.”
Anyone with any information can call police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
