More than £2.6 million worth of cannabis was seized in London as part of city-wide drugs crack down.
Nearly 2,000 Safer Neighbourhoods Officers made 350 arrests as part of Operation Hawk on Thursday.
Across the capital 2,700 cannabis plants were seized, huge quantities of class A drugs were discovered, 37 cannabis factories were closed and more than 460 warrants were executed.
Results included the seizure of half a kilo of heroin at an address in Tottenham and the discovery of £100,000 cash in Barnet.
Officers also found three handguns, a loaded shotgun and a stun gun.
The Safer Neighbourhoods officers were supported by colleagues from units including Trident, the specialist drugs command, Mounted Branch, Territorial Support Group (TSG), the Marine Policing Unit, special constables and volunteer police cadets.
