A man has been charged in connection with the supply of drugs after officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit searched a vehicle in Watford.
The van was stationary, and parked up on St Michael’s Drive, Watford, at around 6pm on Friday, September 20.
Five blocks of suspected amphetamine were recovered, with an estimated weight of 10kg.
A Section 18 search conducted at the suspect’s home address in Surrey resulted in officers finding over £61,000 in cash.
Clive Latter, aged 60, of Addlestone, Surrey, has been charged with possession with intent to supply Class B drugs, possession of false identity documents with improper intention, possession of an offensive weapon and possession of criminal property.
He is currently remanded in custody, and due to appear at St Albans Crown Court on Monday, October 21, 2019.
DS Ian Siggery, from the Watford Local Crime Unit, said: “We are committed to tackling those who attempt to bring drugs into Hertfordshire and will relentlessly pursue those suspected of doing so.
“As part of the on-going fight against drugs supply we need local communities to work with us by reporting suspected drugs dealers and criminal behaviour so that we can take the appropriate action.”
