A TASK force of community police from Fortis Green, Hornsey and Crouch End carried out a dramatic morning drugs raid last Friday.

The officers swooped on two men, Sheyen Morris, 18, and a 22-year-old, at an address in Hornsey.

The pair were arrested on suspicion on possessing drugs after police seized a quantity of cannabis after forcing entry to the property on Newland Road.

Sgt Steve Whiting, of Hornsey Safer Neighbourhoods Team, said: “Drug search warrants are one of a number of policing tactics we are using to tackle our ward priorities, of youth anti-social behaviour, drugs and personal safety, hand in hand. We will continue to respond to community concern, carrying out drug search warrants where appropriate.

Morris was charged with possession of a controlled class B, cannabis drug.

He was bailed to attend Highgate Magistrates’ court on March 8.
