A kilogram of suspected cocaine, £100,000 in cash and an “array of weapons” were seized by police following an arrest in Deptford.

Investigating officers initially stopped a car on Alpine Road yesterday, discovering numerous wraps of white powder – believed to be cocaine – hidden behind the dashboard.

The driver, a 24-year-old man, was arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class A drug with intent to supply.

While the search was taking place, officers noticed another car parked-up nearby.

The female driver entered a property, returning to the vehicle with a bag before driving off.

Officers stopped the car, discovering the bag contained around £50,000 in cash.

They next searched an address linked to the woman, aged 57, finding a further £100,000 in cash and CS spray.

She was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of cocaine, possession of a weapon for the discharge of a noxious liquid/gas, possession of a Class B drug (cannabis) and concealing/removing criminal property.

Later that day, a man was seen entering the same address on Alpine Road from earlier.

Upon leaving with a bag, the 38-year-old was stopped and searched by officers, who recovered around one kilogram of white powder, believed to be cocaine. 

He was arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class A drug (cocaine) with intent to supply.

The address on Alpine Road was then searched, with officers recovering an array of weapons including knives and CS canisters, cutting agents, scales, and cash.

The suspected haul of cocaine has been sent off for testing.

All three suspects were taken to south London police stations where they remain in custody.
