Police have revealed footage of the moment they raided a Peterborough home and found nearly £7,800 in cash and £18,,000 worth of cocaine in a secret safe.

Cambridgeshire police carried out the drugs warrant in Paston Lane, Walton, Peterborough, on 17 June 2019.

In a bedroom upstairs, officers found a small safe hidden inside a black holdall, which was later found to contain £7,800 in cash and about £18,000 worth of cocaine.

Body Warn Video footage of the contents of the safe and cash being counted: 35-year-old Umar Zeshan has been jailed, four years after his arrest.

Two mobile phones and identity documents placed 35-year-old Umar Zeshan in the frame.

Further searches  found other documents and evidence leading to Zeshan, as well as examination of the mobile phones which showed clear evidence of drug dealing.

Zeshan, of Cromwell Road, Millfield, Peterborough, was arrested at Thorpe Wood Police Station a week later (on 25 June) where he replied “no comment” to all questions asked of him.

He appeared at Peterborough Crown Court yesterday (Wednesday 1 February) where he was sentenced to two years in prison after previously admitting possession with intent to supply cocaine and acquiring criminal property, namely cash.

A Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) hearing will be held on 14 June.

Detective Constable Steph Dunlop said: “This is another example of the fantastic work our Neighbourhood Support Teams do to tackle drug dealing in our communities.

“Zeshan was found to be in possession of a significant amount of cocaine, which we do not want in our county. As a force we are working hard to make Cambridgeshire a hostile environment for drug dealers and welcome any information from the public to help us.”
