• The $40 Million Dollar Car

    Comments:  | Leave A Comment

    Police have released photos of almost a quarter of a ton of heroin which they found crammed into the bumpers, wheel arches and engine of a silver Jaguar.

    The luxury car had been delivered to a business in the area of Romford, Essex, last Friday before it was examined by police, the National Crime Agency said.

    They found 198kg of the drug, worth £40 million, stuffed into almost every available space, including the rear seats, dashboard, central console and spare wheel compartment.

    Officers responded in the early hours of Saturday and arrested two men in Luton, Bedfordshire, 50 miles away.

    The pair have now appeared in court charged with drugs offences.

    Noman Qureshi, 32, of Bradford, West Yorkshire, and Israr Khan, 34, of Luton, Bedfordshire, were charged with conspiracy to supply heroin.

    They were remanded in custody after appearing at Luton Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

    The National Crime Agency replaced the Serious Organised Crime Agency in October and is a government department dubbed the ‘British FBI’.
