A man has been jailed for 13 years for his role in a drugs operation after a stash of heroin and cash was found in a car.
Two kilograms of heroin, which the Met estimates to have a street value of £200,000, as well as £4,000 in cash, were found hidden in a car.
Dwayne Campbell, 44, of Regina Road in Norwood, was in the car when police found the stash.
Campbell was with Jade Broadbelt, 33, of Pinemartin Close in Cricklewood, north London.
Officers had identified the pair through investigations into drug supply in north London. They were arrested and taken into custody.
Further enquiries linked the pair to a third man – Demetri Fairweather, 27, of Ealing Road in Wembley. His house was searched and officers found 1kg of cannabis and a further £120,000 in cash.

The three men were found guilty at Harrow Crown Court on May 5 and they were sentenced at the same court on Friday.
Campbell was sentenced to 13 years’ imprisonment for possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and two counts of possessing criminal property.
Broadbelt was jailed for eight years for possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and possession of criminal property, while Fairweather was sentenced to 12 months in jail for possession with intent to supply Class B drugs.
Detective Constable Leigh Dooley, who led the investigation, said: “Thanks to the perceptiveness of officers, these three men have been prevented from spreading harmful substances around the city, if not further afield, and have not been allowed to benefit from the harm they are causing others.”
“We thank the court for the sentences given to these three men and hope that over the coming years Broadbelt, Fairweather and Campbell reflect on their crimes and realise the damage they have done to so many.”
