Police revealed they discovered £1,000 worth of cocaine in a person's boxers while seizing cash from a vehicle during a search.

On Monday evening (October 9), police officers patrolling in the Oxhey area spotted and stopped the vehicle, which Herts Police described as having been “of interest”.

As the Three Rivers officers searched it, they found more than £1,000 in cash.

The two occupants were also searched, under section 23 of the Misuse of Drugs Act, and the officers were able to find 29 wraps of cocaine and £100 in cash in one of their boxer shorts.

The force has estimated the drugs to be worth more than £1,000.

Both were then arrested on suspicion of intent to supply. They remained in police custody as of yesterday evening (October 10).

The stop was carried out by Herts Police’s “proactive”, largely plain-clothed and unmarked, Operation Scorpion unit.

“This was just a small snippet of the 16-hour shift (eight hours overtime) that the Operation Scorpion unit dealt with,” the force added.
