The Met report…..

A man has been jailed after officers carried out a search warrant at a residential address in Camden and found a cannabis farm and quantity of class A drugs. 

Michael Ryan, 59 (04.07.61) of Cranleigh Street, Camden, was sentenced to three years’ imprisonment on Wednesday, 12 August at Wood Green Crown Court after pleading guilty to the cultivation of cannabis; and possession with intent to supply heroin and crack cocaine at the same court on the same day.

The court heard that on Friday, 27 March, officers from the Central North Gangs unit executed an intelligence-led search warrant at Ryan’s address following information from the public.

At the address they discovered 193 wraps of heroin and crack cocaine with a value of around £2,000, as well as a cannabis farm containing sixty mature cannabis plants.

The cannabis farm had been hidden in a spare room disguised as a built-in cupboard in an attempt to conceal it, and the electricity meter had been by-passed which was a fire hazard and danger to neighbours.
