He was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cannabis and during a search of his home officers found a further three fake bottles, made from various types of containers.

In total, 27 wraps of cannabis were recovered and a large quantity of cash, which had been hidden under a bed, was seized.

While in custody, investigating officer’s were able to examine Osahan’s mobile phone which revealed further evidence of drug supplying in the Kingsbury area.

Investigating officer DC Paul Connelly of Brent Police said: “ I am pleased with the result at court today. Osahan thought he had the perfect hiding place for his drugs, but when he was stopped and searched it became very clear to us that there was something not quite right with the bottle. Let this be a lesson to other drug dealers, that however and wherever you try conceal your drugs we are on to you and we will take all steps necessary to seize your money and assets obtained through crime.”
