Detectives have seized a sawn-off shotgun and around half a kilo of cocaine after raiding an address in the borough.
Officers from the National Crime Agency (NCA), supported by the Met, stormed an address in Toucan Close, Park Royal, last week, after they were tipped off about a drugs drop by US Customs.
A parcel containing the class A drug had been sent to the address from St Maarten in the Caribbean
Checks by the NCA revealed the address was suspected of links with street gang activity
The drugs were seized at the address and the firearm and six rounds of ammunition were found hidden beneath a kitchen cupboard.
