A man in his 40s was arrested after police discovered a wooden baton and around £30,000 in cash.
Officers made the arrest after stopping a silver Peugeot 308 on the A134 Lynn Road in Stradsett, near Downham Market, at around 3.30pm on November 19.
During a search of the vehicle under the Misuse of Drugs Act, police found a wooden baton and large amount of cash, believed to total £30,000.
A 42-year-old man was subsequently arrested on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon and being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs.
He has since been released under investigation and police enquiries are ongoing.
Elsewhere in west Norfolk, officers conducted a number of unrelated stop searches in Thetford and seized a vehicle suspected to be stolen on Amulet Close.
A 38-year-old man was found at the scene with class A drugs and, having been interviewed, he admitted possession and will receive a caution.
