A 28-year-old man was arrested in connection with the incident.
A police spokesman said: "Lothian and Borders Police is committed to identifying individuals involved in the supply of drugs and bringing them to justice.
"Our officers continually monitor all roads within the Force area and any vehicle believed to be involved in crime will be subject to a full search.
"We will not tolerate our roads being used to transport drugs or other illegal materials and anyone found to be involved will be robustly dealt with.
"As always, the intelligence we receive from the public helps ensure that potentially harmful drugs such as these can be seized before they reach our communities.
“Anyone who wishes to report drug crime in their area can contact their local policing team or report the matter anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
The man was scheduled to appear at Selkirk Sheriff Court on Tuesday.
