A BRADFORD man has appeared in court after heroin with an estimated street value of £40m was found crammed into a Jaguar car.
The 437lb haul was allegedly hidden in the bumpers, wheel arches, dashboard, central console, spare wheel compartment, engine and rear seating, the National Crime Agency (NCA) revealed.
Noman Qureshi, 32, of Bracken Hill Mews, Bradford, and Israr Khan, 34, of St Ethelbert Avenue, Luton, Bedfordshire, were charged with conspiracy to supply heroin and were remanded in custody after appearing at Luton Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
The agency said the car had been delivered to a business in the Romford area of Essex on Friday evening.
During the early hours of Saturday morning two men were arrested in Luton.
These pictures released by the agency show packages of the drug retrived from the car’s engine compartment, boot and seating area.
The investigation is ongoing.
