A group of men have been arrested after suspected drugs and firearms were seized in the West Midlands yesterday evening (Tuesday, November 21).

Officers arrived at a property in Wolverhampton shortly after 6pm to find heroin, crack, cannabis and MDMA after executing a warrant in Chester Street.

During the search, Wolverhampton’s Priority Crime Team also recovered five firearms, one believed to be viable, a second blank firing weapon that they believe was converted to become viable, and three suspected blank firing weapons.

A box containing suspected ammunition was also seized.

A spokesperson for West Midlands Police said: “Operation Target sees us take a defiant stand against a range of serious and organised crime offences, including drug dealing and firearms. 

“Officers use local intelligence, carry out warrants and target offenders as part of this ongoing crackdown across the West Midlands.”

Four men, aged 20, 21, 23 and 36, were arrested at a property in Whitmore Reans on suspicion of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply.

They remain in police custody as investigations continue.
