A haul of electrical items believed to be stolen have been found in the premises of an Ilford business after a raid by police this morning.
The raid, following work by teams from Redbridge, Newham and Waltham Forest, included the discovery of what police believe was a stolen laptop at the High Road store.
It was reported stolen after a burglary at an address in Valentines ward on Tuesday.
Safer neighbourhoods, borough tasking and response team officers all took part in the operation at about 9.15am, with warrants also executed in High Street, Lewisham.
Insp Daren Donoghue said: “This time of the year is when we see the biggest increase in burglary and we are stepping up our campaign to limit the ways thieves can dispose of their stolen goods.
