A property in Tonbridge was raided by police as part of an operation to tackle drug dealing in London's West End.
Officers executed 11 warrants at a number of addresses, including Severn Close in the west Kent town, on Wednesday morning.
Five people aged between 25 and 40 were arrested and taken into custody, though none of these were made at the Tonbridge property.
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.”
The operation also involved the Met's Taskforce, Detention and Forensic Services along with colleagues from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), Westminster City Council and drug diversion agencies.
