Three men have been charged following the seizure of 7kgs of cocaine in Heston, South West London, last week.
Michael Middleton (40) of Rochford Road, Portsmouth, Andrew Adams (55) of Sudboughn Road, Felixstowe, and Ervis Hoxha (31) of Beechcroft Road, Tooting, were arrested on Thursday 12 March by officers from the joint NCA and Metropolitan Police Organised Crime Partnership.
Prior to their arrests, Middleton and Adams had driven back to the UK via the Eurotunnel service from Calais to Folkstone. They then drove to Westbrook Road in Heston, where they met with Hoxha.
Officers seized a rucksack from the scene in which the drugs were hidden.
Following the search of a property in Tooting, officers also recovered £2,000 in cash and a small quantity of cocaine.
On Friday 13 March, all three men were charged with conspiracy to supply class A drugs.
They are due to appear at Kingston Crown Court on 14 April 2020.
The investigation is ongoing.
