A teenager has been arrested after police found a stash of cannabis and forged passports while searching his home. 

Officers also found £3,000 in cash inside the property but believe some of it may be fake. 

They carried out the raid after arresting a teenager in Grays yesterday. 

It formed part of an ongoing crackdown on drug dealers using trains to get around south Essex by British Transport Police.

Officers said on Twitter: "We said we were doing more ops.

"19yr old male arrested for drugs possession by our plain clothes officers clearly isn't a follower.

"Including a premises search, in total we seized 250 bags of cannabis, approx £3000 in cash (some counterfeit) & forged passports."
