Norwich police said the male driver was stopped in the city as part of Operation Moonshot - a police crackdown on organised crime in Norwich - in Oak Street at 3pm on Friday.
The man in his 30s was arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle, excess drugs after he tested positive for cocaine, unfit due to manner of driving, possession of cannabis and concern in the supply of drugs after approximately £1,300 and a newly-purchased coat of £900 was found.
He was later arrested for possession of class A drugs which police said he had concealed 'within his person'.

The man was placed under constant observations until the hours of the morning when he agreed to comply fully with a strip search.
