Suspected crystal meth lab raided in Primrose Hill
17:00 27 June 2014
A man suspected of cooking crystal meth at his Primrose Hill home was arrested during a police raid.
Officers found a crystalline substance in a pan on the kitchen cooker and a tin containing a similar substance in the bedroom.
They raided the 58-year-old’s flat in Fitzroy Road on Wednesday, June 18, after a tip-off.
The substance is thought to be crystal meth, a highly-addictive form of the drug methamphetamine made famous by hit American TV series Breaking Bad.
It has been sent for testing.
The man was arrested on suspicion of possessing Class A drugs and has been placed on police bail until September.
Insp Simon Brooker, in charge of neighbourhood policing in central Camden, said: “We will wait for it to be analysed. Crystal meth is not that common in Camden..”
