Two men including one from Holloway have been charged following the discovery of more than £1million worth of cocaine during a drugs bust on Tuesday.

The men were held in a depot in Shepherd’s Bush after 10 kilos of the class A drug were tracked from Columbia to an address in Cricklewood.

Carlos Martinez, 40, of Holloway Road, Holloway, and Sergio Quintero, 45, from Chelsea, appeared before Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court yesterday (Thursday) accused of the importation of cocaine.

Both men were remanded in custody to appear before Blackfriars Crown Court on a date yet to be scheduled.
