A pensioner is among three men who have been arrested after almost £4million of suspected class B drugs were seized in Barking.
The 66-year-old has been held on suspicion of possession with intent to supply controlled drugs.
On Monday (June 7), officers recovered a number of boxes from a car in Upney Lane, which contained a total of 96kg of white powder.
A Met Police spokesperson said it is suspected to be ketamine, with an estimated street value of around £3.8m.
Two men in their 30s were also arrested on suspicion of drugs offences.
