Three teenagers were arrested last week after carrying drugs and a large "Rambo style" knife near the Mercury Mall shopping centre.
Police are thought to have tracked the suspects from the Junction Road area at 1.10pm when officers were made aware of three teens, aged 16, 17 and 18, acting suspiciously.
When they were approached, one of them was recognised as a known gang nominal and linked to drug supply - all three were searched.
One of the three was found with a large “Rambo style” hunting knife in his rucksack along with 17 bags of herbal cannabis.
The second was found with a flick knife in his waist band and the third had £290 in his possession.
All three, who are from the Redbridge area, were arrested for possession with intent to supply cannabis and two were also arrested for possession of an offensive weapon.
They have since been bailed to return to Romford Police Station at a later date.
