SHOPS, bars and houses were visited by police as part of an operation across the capital.
From Friday last week through to Sunday, Brent Safer Neighbourhoods Team and Partnership Unit took part in Operation Condor, a London-wide crackdown on crimes relating to licensable activities.
In Brent, officers visited 40 pawnbrokers and jewellers over the two days. They issued the shops with ultra violet detectors to trace property marked with SmartWater security dye.
Two drugs search warrants were executed and three arrests were made at Westcoast bar, Harlesden, for possession with intent to supply cannabis and another at a premises in Neasden Circle, where nothing was found.
In a covert operation, police cadets visited 13 premises, two of which sold alcohol to people under the legal age. The licensees were fined and warned about licence breaches.
Five sex shops were visited and all were found to be complying with the conditions of their licence.
Nine arrests were made for a variety of offences, including drugs, firearms offences and offensive weapons in the form of knives during a vehicle stop.
