Warrants have been executed at several addresses as police aim to crack down on the supply of drugs.

Eleven warrants, three of which were in Enfield, had been executed across London and Kent on the morning of Wednesday, January 8.

Five people between 25 and 40 years-old were arrested and taken into custody.

The warrants were executed as part of Operation Dissemble, an ongoing operation to tackle drugs supply in London’s West End.

Officers from the Met’s Central West BCU, Taskforce, Met Detention and Forensic Services along with colleagues from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), Westminster City Council and drug diversion agencies were involved in the operation.

Detective Superintendent Nick Sumner, from the Met’s Central West Basic Command Unit, said: “This operation is a continued campaign to arrest and charge those involved in bringing and selling drugs in the Soho and Cambridge Circus area.

“Within the three days we have executed warrants as part of this operation, five people have now been arrested and we will continue to make further arrests as more intelligence comes to light.”
