Police have seized 10kg of cocaine with an estimated street value of £500,000 after searches of a van and a property in Bromley.
Three men and a woman were arrested yesterday as part of an ongoing investigation into the supply of class A drugs in Kent and south east London.
One of the four men arrested was seen leaving an address in Bromley and meeting with another man in a white van.
Officers swooped on the van and discovered 8kg of suspected cocaine.
Both men were detained and a search carried out at the property unveiled a further 2kg.
Also present was another man and a woman who were both arrested.
All four, aged between 26 and 42, were arrested for being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs, namely cocaine and taken to custody where they remain.
Detective Inspector Nikki Owen, from the Met’s specialist crime south, said: “Removing approximately half a million pounds worth of Class A drugs in an afternoon is great work by Met officers.
"Within a few hours we deployed, detained and arrested three men and one woman involved in the supply of drugs – which is the catalyst for violent crime that so many of us are concerned about. Drugs can devastate lives, ruin families and damage communities.”
