Some of the heroin police found in the stop
48 blocks of the drug, each weighing 500g, were discovered with each of the blocks cased in cement.
Officers stopped the vehicle proactively on Tuesday, 17 November.
A 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs and was taken into police custody.
Commander Dave McLaren, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said: “This demonstrates the extent criminals will go to in order to conceal drugs trafficking activity from police. However, we are committed to being one step ahead of these types of criminals to make sure we remove drugs from streets of London.
“Drugs supply is a driving factor in the levels of violent crime and by taking 48 blocks of suspected heroin out of the hands of criminals we will have made a major blow to organised drugs supply networks.”
