Drugs, cash and weapons were seized and two men have been charged as part of a police operation targeting London drug lines.

Police said they conducted three warrants last week (April 19) as part of Operation Yamata, in which Met officers use data analysis to dismantle drug dealing networks.

In a tweet on MPS Islington’s Twitter account, the force said that it recovered “a quantity of crack cocaine and heroin”, around £15,000 in cash and “a number of offensive weapons”.

Officers said that two men had been arrested and subsequently charged with six offences.

Pictures posted by the force showed drugs wrapped in a plastic bag, as well as two mobile phones and a safe filled with wads of cash.

The tweet read: “On Wednesday 19th April officers from Op Yamata conducted 3 warrants leading to the recovery of a quantity of crack cocaine and heroin, approximately 15k cash and a number of offensive weapons.

“Two males were arrested and have since been charged with 6 offences.”

When contacted, the Metropolitan Police declined to give more details.
