Two cannabis farms have been discovered and items including a stun gun and spent bullet casings have also been found.

A puppy farm has been located and is currently being inspected by the RSPCA - one dog has been seized.

The following have been arrested:

.A 27-year-old man for suspicion of cultivation of cannabis and abstraction of electricity

.A 51-year-old woman for suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class B drugs and cultivation of cannabis

.A 26-year-old man for suspicion of possession with intent to supply class B drugs and abstraction of electricity

.A 54-year-old man for suspicion of the production of class B drugs and abstraction of electricity

.A 29-year-old man was arrested on recall to prison

.A 24-year-old woman for suspicion of possession with intent to supply class B drugs, cultivation of cannabis and money laundering

.A 31-year-old man for suspicion of possession with intent to supply class B drugs, cultivation of cannabis and money laundering.

All of those arrested were taken to a police station where they remain in custody at this time pending further enquiries.

Det Sup Jane Corrigan said: “Today’s operation highlights what can be achieved though partnership action.

“Drugs and the associated crime that comes with them are a blight on the lives of the law abiding communities of London.

“The action we have taken this morning will significantly reduce the negative impact of the drug trade on local people in this area and disrupt the activities of both drug dealers and users alike.”
