A quantity of cash between £5,000 and £10,000 was also seized.
Three people were arrested at the scene.
The spokesman said James Thompson, 33, who was living at Totnes Road but is from the Liverpool area, has been charged with possession with intent to supply class A drugs and was due to appear at South Devon Magistrates’ Court this morning.
A 38-year-old man from Totnes Road, Paignton and an 18-year-old woman from Queen Elizabeth Drive, Paignton have both been given police bail for conspiracy to supply heroin until December 10 while police carry out further enquiries.
