Both men pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply the drug and money laundering at Harrow Crown Court on May 6. They will be sentenced at the same court on June 1.

Det Const Irfan Khalifa said: “This is a fantastic example of different areas of the Met working together to crackdown on crime and remove a huge amount of class A drugs from the streets of London. The evidence we built against Baca and Hazizolli was so overwhelming that they had no choice but to plead guilty.
