A Rednal shop has been forced to cease trading after police seized what they believe to be Class A and Class B drugs from the premises.
Police were alerted by residents and customers who were concerned about the supply of drugs from the shop in Edgewood Road.
On Thursday 5th June, officers executed a warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act and suspected drugs and paraphernalia were seized.
Two men, aged 25 and 28, were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs. They remain on police bail pending further enquiries.
Officers linked with Birmingham City Council and on Tuesday 10th June the shop was ordered to cease trading.
Longbridge neighbourhood policing team are urging people to continue to report all suspicious activity.
Commenting on the on-going investigation Sergeant Robin O’Brien said: “I thank people for coming forward and providing the police with the vital information which led to the Longbridge team executing the warrant at this location. Drugs suspected to be both class A and B have been recovered.
“These drugs have been sent off for analysis to confirm what charges these men may face. But our work hasn’t ended there and as part of the investigation progresses we’ve linked in with the council which has closed the property and ordered it to cease trading.
“I would encourage residents to contact us if they have any concerns, not just about the supply of drugs but any other criminal activity. The information you provide could be used to secure search warrants and the removal of associated crime from your community.”
