IF YOGI Bear had stolen this picnic basket he would have found himself still hungry as it contains suspected stolen mobile phones rather than sandwiches and cakes.

It is just part of the haul of items seized by police in a phone shop in Penge High Street this morning (February 27) as part of Operation Big Wing.

Officers also found drugs in the store where they arrested four people on suspicion of drugs offences, handling stolen goods and immigration offences.

In another Big Wing raid, at an address in Imperial Way, Chislehurst, a woman was arrested after drugs were found in the premises.

They also found a cannabis factory in Ruskin Walk, Bromley Common, but have yet to arrest someone over this matter.

The operation is Met-wide and so far Bromley police officers have arrested 17 people.
