Two men have been charged after a loaded gun, ammunition, £60,000 in cash and cocaine seized at a flat in Brent Cross, according to police.
Officers from the Organised Crime Partnership raided a property in Claremont Road on Friday.
Police say they found a Retay 17 self-loading pistol in a laundry basket, with three rounds of ammunition loaded in the magazine.
They say they seized a further four rounds of ammunition and £60,000 of suspected criminal cash, as well as more than 100 wraps of cocaine, scales and other drug dealing paraphernalia.
Matt McMillan, from the Organised Crime Partnership, said: “The fact that the firearm seized was viable and ready loaded meant it presented a significant danger to the public, which has now been mitigated."
