Two arrests were made today after police raided a skip hire and commercial waste business as part of the Met’s Operation Big Wing.
Officers descended on premises in Waxlow Road, Harlesden, with a theft warrant following a tip off about “illegal activity” at the site.
Two men were arrested in relation to immigration issues and one of them was also arrested on suspicion of theft.
Immigration officials and the Environment Agency also attended the raid.
Det Sgt Stuart McKechnie of Brent Police said: “This is an excellent example of a joint approach working in partnership with multi agencies in conjunction with a further 20 search warrants executed on Brent during Operation Big Wing.”
