A stop and search of a suspicious vehicle has led to a massive £40k seizure of drugs.
At around 15:20 hours on Wednesday 25th November, Northamptonshire Police officers were on patrol when their attention was drawn to a BMW 5 series that was being driven in Horsemarket.
Officers indicated for the vehicle to stop so that they could speak with the driver.
As officers searched the car, they found 31 wraps of suspected Class A drugs.
A Section 18 search was then carried out at a nearby address that was connected to the driver of the BMW.
During the search, officers found a large quantity of cannabis as well as half-a-kilogram of cocaine.
Officers believe that the drugs could be worth as much £40,000.
After a 19-hour shift, officers charged Ziso Berouka, aged 45, of Lower Hester Street, Semilong, Northampton, with possession of Class A and Class B drugs with intent to supply.
Berouka has been remanded into custody and will next appear at Northampton Crown Court on December 23, 2020.
