Four Accused of Handling Guns and Ammunition

Four Birmingham men accused of handling guns and ammunition will appear before the city’s magistrates court.

 

Self-employed Sundish Nazran, 31, of Handsworth; unemployed Amar Ghalib, 32, of Sheldon; and unemployed Donavan Rowe, 33, also of Handsworth, are all charged with conspiring to acquire, use or possess criminal property – specifically guns and ammunition.

The trio – who were charged – will stand alongside manager Theodore Wiggan, 27, from West Bromwich who is charged with conspiracy to supply firearms.

 

All were arrested by detectives from West Midlands Police’s Serious and Organised Crime Unit probing the illegal sale of guns in Birmingham.

 

Eight guns and over 500 rounds of ammunition have been seized as part of a long-running and intelligence-led policing operation. The investigation into the illegal sale of firearms continues.

 

Five men arrested by the Serious and Organised Crime Unit will appear before Birmingham Crown Court on 30 January.

Unemployed Nosakhere Stephenson, 40, of Birmingham; personal assistant Rowan Gul, 32, Sheldon, Birmingham; driver Janed Mohammed, 20, Smethwick; unemployed Usman Hussain, 30, of Sheldon, Birmingham; and unemployed Mohammed Fedah, 26, of Smethwick are all charged with possession of firearms and conspiring to supply firearms.

 

The five were remanded in custody following a brief appearance at Birmingham Magistrates Court on 19 January.

 

Anyone with information about suspected gun crime should call police on 101 or the national charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
