LONDON: Police have seized millions of pounds in cash, drugs, guns and other weapons in an operation targeting thousands of safety deposit boxes used by criminals to store the tools of their trade.
The operation involved the opening of deposit boxes at three centres in London, all of which was filmed by the police in case anyone alleged that officers involved had stolen some of the contents. Police officials said yesterday they discovered £35m within the boxes, plus firearms, gold, forged passports etc.
