West Midlands Police seized Class A drugs and a crossbow in an early morning raid on an address in Northfield today (Friday 30th June).
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.”
Earlier this month, a 19 year old gang member Marcel Mullings-Boyd was jailed for 5 years after police found cannabis plants and a hand gun in his home in the Hollymoor area of Northfield.
On June 6th, 3 males – including a 16 year old – were arrested after police seized guns and ammunition following raids in Northfield.
Anyone with any information that could help officers tackling organised crime, violent crime and anti-social behaviour in South West Birmingham can call West Midlands Police on 101.
