A former PCSO and two of his brothers, who were living just over a mile from the Olympic site in Stratford, were also among those detained during the police and MI5 operation to prevent a suspected terror assault.
One of the brothers was Tasered by officers. Counter-terrorism police had first searched their home last November.
The Daily Telegraph understands the police moved over fears that a group had obtained a sword which could potentially be used in a terrorist attack.
