Two men were arrested and six kilos of heroin were found after a traffic stop in West Norwood yesterday (February 9).

London's Metropolitan Police posted a photo showing six 1 kilo blocks they said contained heroin that were found after officers stopped a car in West Norwood on Tuesday.

The driver of the car, a 49-year-old man, was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs (heroin).

Police said that after "further inquiries", detectives attended a residential address in Banstead and arrested a 35-year-old man on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs (heroin).

While there they found £50,000 in cash and also arrested the 35-year-old on suspicion of possession of criminal property.

"This operation has resulted in a large quantity of Class A drugs being taken off the streets of London," Detective Sergeant Elliott James, from the Met’s Economic Crime Team, said.

"We will continue to robustly target those who prioritise self-benefit and selfish ambition.

"Greed is being prioritised over community safety, those that continue in this vain will be targeted and brought to trial."
