TEN people were arrested as police from the Territorial Support Group carried out warrants at 16 addresses across Hillingdon this morning (1).

Around 250 officers in total descended on the addresses following an investigation that was launched in September.

Gang activity concerned with supplying class A drugs was linked to violence in the West Drayton area.

Intelligence also suggested a new county line was being established, running into nearby counties.

Officers found and seized quantities of drugs believed to be heroin and crack cocaine, a stun gun and stolen tools.

Women and men from Hillingdon, Cowley and Hayes were arrested for offences involving drugs, criminal property and handling stolen goods.

Another was arrested on suspicion of breaching bail conditions.

They are all currently in custody.

Det Chief Insp Rav Thind said: “I hope our work this morning shows we do not accept criminality and that we are determined to crackdown on the supply of drugs.”
