The 21-year-old, from Ilford, was arrested on suspicion of possessing criminal property and two counts of being concerned in supplying a controlled drug.

Both men have been bailed while the investigation continues, and a quantity of class A and B drugs, suspected to be crack cocaine and cannabis, and offensive weapons were seized by police from the address.

"I hope this sends a clear message to those involved in criminality and drugs supply that your actions will not be tolerated in our community," said Sergeant Deane Brittain, from the Safer Neighbourhood Team. 

"We will continue to act swiftly on information received and ensure those responsible are brought to justice and the most vulnerable members of our community protected."
