Armed police brought Camden High Street to a standstill this evening as part of a “pre-planned” operation to arrest a suspected drug dealer.
A number of armed cops helped colleagues detain the individual in a white Toyota Prius - who has now been taken to a south London police station.
A Scotland Yard spokesperson said: "At approximately 17:50hrs on Monday, 12 August, officers including firearms officers, carried out a pre-planned operation on Camden High Street.
"A man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply controlled substances. He has been taken to a south London police station where he remains in custody."
The police did not release any further details of the man in question.
