One hundred of wraps of what appeared to be cocaine and a cannabis factory were discovered in a series of raids in Bexley yesterday.
In addition to the cocaine and cannabis factory discovered at two addresses, another home contained a “significant quantity of cannabis cultivating equipment”.
Another raid resulted in the seizure of cannabis, cash and two imitation firearms.
The Metropolitan Police joined the co-ordinated day of action alongside other UK forces and 13 countries in Europe.
Officers carried out joint patrols, automatic number plate recognition operations and undercover licensing operations in an ongoing drive to reduce crime in London.
The main target was organised criminal networks behind mobile phone thefts.
Officers also made spot checks and gave advice to pawn shops and other stores where thieves may try to sell on stolen goods, marked mobile phones and advised the public about how to keep their valuables safe.
