As well as the thousands of pounds of cash, mobile phones and drugs have also been seized in the raid in Alum Rock and Bordesley Green.

The crackdown by the police has been active in a two day operation at the homes of drug dealers operating in Alum Rock and Bordesley Green.

Drugs warrants were executed by the Bordesley Green police team across ten properties in the neighbourhood – further raids are being planned.

The raids have cut off supply and demand for drugs in the area.

The crackdown has seen raids carried out at homes in the following roads: Essedon Road, Denville Crescent, Sunnymede Road, Reigate Avenue, Fernhurst Road, Bordesley Green Road East and Brookmeadow Road.

Sergeant Hanif Ullah who is leading the crackdown, said: “There is no question that drugs harm communities. Crimes like burglary, theft and robbery are often carried out to fund crippling drug addictions.

“It is vital we break this chain of drugs supply not only to prevent crime, but to protect the most vulnerable in our society from further harm.”

Sgt. Ullah also praised residents within the local area – who were instrumental in providing the information which led to all ten of the warrants.

He added: “I’d personally like to encourage our communities to keep talking to us.

“This week has been hugely successful and it is testament to the relationship we have with local residents – if they hadn’t raised concerns with us, none of this would have happened.

“We hope this demonstrates to the people of Alum Rock and Bordesley Green that we are here, we are listening and we are determined to make a difference.”
