Class A and B drugs were seized as West Midlands Police carried out early morning raids on three addresses in south Birmingham this morning (Thursday 11th October).

In a pre-planned operation, officers raided homes in Long Nuke Road, Northfield and in Greaves Square and Monksway in Kings Norton.

Class A and B drugs were recovered from two of the properties and part of what is thought to be a homemade ‘slam gun’ was discovered in a car at one of the addresses.

Four people were arrested during the operation:

  • Man (21) – suspicion of possession of Class A drugs, assault and criminal damage
  • Man (33) – suspicion of assault and possession of Class B drugs with intent to supply
  • Man (56) – suspicion of possession of Class B drugs with intent to supply
  • Woman (24) – suspicion of criminal damage and assault.

All four remain in custody for questioning.

Inspector Lisa Edwards from Birmingham Police, said: “This action forms part of an on-going crackdown on suspected organised crime and drugs in Birmingham.

“This was a pre-planned operation and we anticipate there will be more in the future. Drugs are harmful to our communities and a gun in the wrong hands can have potentially very serious consequences.”
