Officers seized gold and drugs during operation targeting traders selling stolen jewellery

Two men have been bailed after they were arrested when police raided shops in Wembley suspected of selling stolen jewellery.

Detectives stormed the jewellers in Ealing Road and Wembley High Road where they seized gold and drugs.

A separate address in Aspen Drive, Wembley, was also raided.

Det Insp Lily Benbow said: “I have led this operation to break the link between the burglar and the handler, specifically in relation to stolen Indian jewellery.

“I will do this for the honest people of Brent and ensure that criminals will not prosper.”

A 50-year-old man was held on suspicion of handling stolen goods and a 25-year-old man was arrested for possession of Class B and C drugs.
