In a pre-planned operation, officers executed a warrant at an address in Tarragon Gardens at around 3.40am.

A woman, 28, and man, 22, were arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A drugs. They were later released pending further investigation.

A spokeswoman for West Midlands Police said: “The raid forms part of an on-going crackdown on suspected organised crime groups in Birmingham.”
