RAIDS were carried out by police at Wembley shops surrounding the handling of stolen goods.
Officers from the Brent Safer Neighbourhoods Teams and the Intelligence Unit carried out search warrants at the businesses in Ealing Road and Wembley High Road, as well as an address in Aspen Drive, on Thursday May 10.
The operation was carried out to target people suspected of handling stolen Indian jewellery.
During the search a 50-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods and a quantity of gold was seized by police.
A 25-year-old man was also arrested for possession of class B and C drugs.
Detective inspector, Lily Benbow, said: “We have received information regarding some premises where we believe people are taking in stolen goods and profiting from them. I have led this operation to break the link between the burglar and the handler, specifically in relation to stolen Indian jewellery.
"I will do this for the honest people of Brent and ensure that criminals will not prosper. If you have any information about such criminals please contact Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.”
Borough commander Matthew Gardner said: “If I find any premises on Brent that takes stolen goods without appropriate checks to ensure the seller is credible, I will hunt them down and do everything within the law to close them - period.”
