Knives and drugs were recovered after officers swooped on addresses in Druids Heath during dawn raids yesterday (13/12).

The pre-planned operation was in response to intelligence and saw warrants executed at two properties in Baverstock Road and Milston Close.

In total, two knives and a quantity of Class A and B drugs were seized from both of the properties.

A woman aged 50 and a 16-year-old boy were arrested from Baverstock Road on suspicion of possession with intent to supply drugs. They have both been released from police custody under investigation.

A 23-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis from the other property. He has also been released under investigation.

Inspector Noeleen Murrin, from Birmingham Police, said: “This action should hopefully reassure our communities that we are committed to keeping them safe and tackling crime that effects them.

“We have listened to their concerns and this is just the start of other enforcement activity we plan to carry out. We would urge anyone with concerns about criminal behaviour in the area to contact us.”
