The Met Police Service Commissioner accompanied officers on dawn raids in Camden and Islington on Tuesday.
This comes after an investigation was launched following a spate of violent robberies and burglaries over the past four months, where victims were threatened with weapons including knives, batons, hammers and axes.
Police raided addresses in George Mews and Chester Road in Camden and Thornhill Road in Islington on Tuesday.
A 24-year-old man and two 29-year-old men were arrested on suspicion of burglary. They have been taken to a north London police station where they remain in custody.
They were arrested in relation to one particular incident in the slew of crimes – a burglary which took place in Courtleigh Avenue, Barnet on November 24.
