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.
