Drugs and a gun uncovered in raids across Brent

THIS is the gun and drugs seized by the police when they raided the homes of suspected crooks across the borough.

Operation Fusion, an intelligence-led crackdown on serious crime in Brent, saw cops target around 30 homes last Thursday.

The sawn-off shotgun was discovered in a traveller’s site in Lynton Close, Neasden, around two kilos of cannabis and a quantity of crack cocaine was seized at two other addresses.

Suspects were jolted out of their beds from as early as 6am with the police carrying out their final raid late into the evening.

Detective Sergeant Jim Halkett, who led Operation Fusion told the Times they aimed to stop criminals in their tracks.

He said: “We aim to significantly disrupt the criminal activities taking place in Brent.

“This will improve the quality of life of law-abiding residents.”
