The men arrested are aged between 48 and 76. Around 200 officers were involved in morning raids of 12 addresses in London and Kent.
The Met said :”A number of large bags containing significant amounts of high value property have been recovered from one address. Officers are confident these are items stolen during the burglary."
The dramatic operation came just over six weeks after a gang staged the audacious robbery at the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit company and escaped with around £60 million in diamonds, cash and valuables.
All those held in raids in north London are British, Scotland Yard said.

There could be a conspiracy theory that said the bags of evidence were taken along on the raid by TPTB and planted on an old school firm to fit them up for the job , that way TPTB got what they were looking for in the Hatton Garden raid , returned the unwanted booty to its rightful owners and showed the public that bad guys go to prison.
SIS at its best.
Far fetched ?
