POLICE seized weapons, cash and 'heroin' after a raid in Brierley Hill earlier this week.

Five men were arrested on suspicion of dealing Class A drugs after police carried out several warrants on Gorsty Avenue, in the Brockmoor area, on July 14.

The police operation followed tip offs from concerned members of the public.

Officers stormed one home and found six weapons, cash and what they believe to be heroin.

A spokesperson for West Midlands Police said: "All five men have been released on bail while we carry out a more detailed investigation.

"They can’t talk to each other or visit certain places while on bail.
