Police in London today found a “golf ball” sized rock of cocaine hidden in a private hire vehicle.
Officers from the City of London police force arrested both the driver and passenger travelling in the vehicle as part of its “Project Servator” which is “designed to to deter, detect and disrupt a wide range of criminal activity”.
Photos posted on social media by City of London Police show the size of seized cocaine. A dark blue Prius with Transport for London signage visible was seen being given the once over by a sniffer dog on Norton Folgate in the busy financial district of town.
The police source said on Twitter: “Having a second job these days is not unheard of. There is a serious problem if your second job involves couriering cocaine around London in your cab.
“Great find by PD Alfie. 1 golf ball sized rock seized. Driver and passenger arrested.”
