    Police have seized $8 million worth of heroin from a car at Mascot in Sydney's east.

    Officers from the Gangs Squad followed a car from Brighton Le Sands to Mascot in Sydney's east yesterday afternoon.

    They pulled the car over on Botany Road at 4:00pm (AEST) and searched it, finding 80 blocks of heroin weighing 28 kilograms.

    The 23-year-old driver was arrested.

    A short time later police also arrested a 28-year-old in Sydney's CBD over the haul.

    Investigators later searched two units in the city centre and properties at Brighton Le Sands and Chippendale where they found several hundred thousand dollars in cash, laptops, scales and drug packaging material.

    Both men have been charged with supplying a commercial quantity of a prohibited drug and possessing a prohibited drug.

    They will face court today.

    More arrests likely in 28kg heroin seizure

    Police say they expect to make further arrests over a seizure of heroin valued at $8 million in Sydney.

    Two men were arrested and charged after police searched a car in Mascot yesterday afternoon and found 28 kilograms of the drug.

    Officers later searched several properties and allegedly found hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash along with drug paraphernalia.

    Detective Superintendent Mal Lanyon says the seizure is significant.

    Any drug is dangerous to society.

    Obviously such a large quantity of drug, by the time it's broken down and available on the street, has a significant potential cost to society both in terms of lives and other potential health consequences, he said.

    Both men charged have been refused bail and will face court again on Thursday.
