Once inside police discovered a concoction of drugs including �40,000 worth of amphetamine, �1600 worth of cocaine, �130 worth of herbal cannabis, several thousand pills of Kamagra (a copy version of Viagra), three kilos of Benzocaine (a local anaesthetic used to cut cocaine), 10 kilos of Boric acid (used to cut cocaine).

Police later recovered further items from Wigley's home address including a stolen JCB digger, a quantity of cannabis, steroids and a police style baton.
Officers also recovered digital scales covered with traces of cocaine and a quantity of cannabis at Chalkley's home address in Kings Road, Eaton Socon.
Detective Chief Inspector Chris Mead said: "The sentences handed down at court conclude a complex and challenging investigation into a significant drugs enterprise operating within St Neots.
"Those convicted were involved in the supply of both class A and class B drugs in significant quantities.
"This operation has without doubt disrupted a significant criminal enterprise and the message to anyone thinking of trying to fill the gap left behind is clear - don't or you will be next and the prison sentences will be yours."
