A large quantity of class A drugs and hundreds of thousands of pounds in cash have been seized after officers stopped a car in north London.

Officers from Specialist Crime, supported by officers from Met Intelligence and armed officers, stopped a car in Camrose Avenue, Edgware on Monday, 6 April.  

Officers searched the vehicle and recovered 14 kilos of class A drugs along with an estimated £300,000 in cash.

A 26-year-old man  and a 24-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs (cocaine).

They were taken to a north London police station where they remain in custody.

Detective Chief Inspector Driss Hayoukane, from Specialist Crime, said:

This is another fantastic example of different areas of the Met working together to crackdown on crime. Drugs blight communities and ruin lives and so the Met will continue to target those responsible for bringing them onto the streets of London.”
Enquiries continue.
