One of 10 warrants we executed yesterday

Here’s who we’ve charged:

•    Zulfikhar Khan, aged 28, from Primley Avenue, Hodge Hill
•    Mohammed Hamza Butt, 22, from Cobham Road, Bordesley Green
•    Mohammed Ishaq Khan, 37, from Knowle Road, Sparkhill

•    …and a 16-year-old boy from the Bordesley Green area.

They are all set to appear in Birmingham Magistrates Court today (21 Oct). As part of our investigation we’ve seized heroin and cocaine with a street value of hundreds of thousands of pounds.

There was no hiding place for drug dealers who plague our communities as we worked with neighbouring forces to target County Lines supply chains in a week-long offensive.

All last week (11-17 Oct) we hit the homes of people suspected of running cannabis, crack cocaine and heroin supply networks from the West Midlands.

We arrested 143 people, seized 630 wraps of Class A drugs and 3,400 cannabis plants, plus recovered weapons including firearms and more than 30 knives and machetes.https://www.youtube.com/embed/VerwKmO4ULE?autoplay=1&start=0&rel=0

Our officers – who worked alongside police in Warwickshire, West Mercia and Staffordshire in cross-border operations – also recovered nearly £30,000 in cash and dozens of suspected ‘burner’ phones suspected of being used as drugs hotlines.

They will be examined by investigators as we look to bring down County Lines gangs who exploit children and vulnerable people to move drugs from the West Midlands into shire counties and smaller towns.

Superintendent Wendy Bailey, our lead for County Lines, said: “These gangs are ruthless: they use people as commodities, coercing or threatening them to deal drugs on their behalf. It’s not rare for these people, including children, to be attacked by rival drugs gangs. 

“Last week was really successful: we executed 43 warrants during as we went after offenders and ran operations at transport hubs, and on the road and rail network, looking for people moving drugs.

“But importantly we also carried out work aimed at protecting children from exploitation and to raise awareness of tactics used by drugs gangs.

“Officers visited care homes and schools, spoke to staff at hotels and taxi firms so they know the signs to be aware of, and ex-offenders now working as mentors with the charity St Giles came in to share their experiences with our officers.

“This was a week of joint activity with other forces and charities but rest assured we are targeting County Lines gangs every day of the week.”

(SPAIN) NCA/SNP REPORT: Seven British fugitives have been arrested in the space of just three weeks as a result of joint operations #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.24: The fugitives – all men – are wanted in the UK for various unrelated offences including supplying Class A and B drugs, supplying firearms, causing wounding with intent and conspiracy to rob…..

#AceDailyNews reports that the NCA & Spanish National Police (SNP) have arrested seven British fugitives in Spain in just three weeks for ‘drug & firearms offences’ and causing wounding with intent & conspiracy to rob: The suspects remain in custody awaiting extradition proceedings.

The flurry of arrests were executed by the Spanish National Police with support from the NCA’s international liaison officer network, Interpol Manchester and UK police partners.

In late June one suspect, aged 45, was arrested in Estepona, southern Spain. He was wanted by the NCA in connection to a 40kg cocaine conspiracy.

In the early hours of 4 July, a 27-year-old man was arrested in Marbella for allegedly causing wounding with intent. He is wanted by Greater Manchester Police.

Another UK national wanted by West Midlands Police, was arrested on 5 July in Fuengirola, southern Spain, on suspicion of cocaine and firearms supply.

On 6 July two brothers aged 37 and 35, also wanted by GMP, for allegedly supplying cocaine were arrested in Alicante.

A day later a 36-year-old man wanted by Merseyside Police was arrested in Estepona for allegedly supplying firearms and Class A and B drugs.

On 12 July, a 26-year old man wanted by Greater Manchester Police was arrested in Fuengirola in connection to affray with a machete.

The NCA’s international liaison officers worked with Spanish partners and the Crown Prosecution Service to execute the arrests – some under pre-existing European Arrest Warrants, and some under new Trade and Cooperation Agreement warrants.

Dave Hucker Head of European Operations at the NCA, said: “Seven arrests in just three weeks is the result of some very hard work by the Agency with our Spanish partners – who have allocated critical resources and operated quickly to secure these arrests: Fugitives should know that the NCA work hand in glove with international law enforcement partners, and that we therefore have significant reach: At home and abroad we will never give up on finding offenders who have fled justice.”

(LONDON) MET/NCA REPORT: Officers investigating drug supply in Southwark have made 12 arrests following an eight month proactive operation #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.22: Officers, assisted by the Met’s Territorial Support Group (TSG) and colleagues from the National Crime Agency (NCA), targeted 16 addresses in south London in raids starting early on Wednesday morning….

#AceDailyNews reports that drug warrants were carried out in Southwark on Wednesday, 21 July, by officers from ‘Southwark Safer Neighbourhoods Team’ and the local CID, along with officers from the Met’s Central Specialist Crime, led an operation focused on the disruption of suspected offenders operating in the Peckham and Old Kent Road areas.

In total, 12 males – aged between 16 and 55 – were arrested on suspicion of offences including supply of Class A drugs, conspiracy to supply Class A drugs and being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.

Searches at the addresses have concluded and officers have seized a quantity of what is believed to be Class A and Class B drugs, as well as a stash of cash.

The investigation was launched in December 2020 after officers identified a number of people involved in drug supply across Southwark.

The early stages of the investigation revealed to officers that there were a large amount of drugs lines operating in the area. Those believed to be concerned in the supply were subsequently targeted as part of the long running operation.

The operation involved more than 200 officers from the Met, as well as a number of officers from the NCA.

Neighbourhood Inspector Tom Cornish, from the Central South Basic Command Unit, which covers Lambeth and Southwark, said:“This morning’s activity is a direct result of months and months of hard work by officers. The public have played an important role in providing information that has assisted us in the dismantling of these drug lines. Concerns of drug dealing in the area were raised and we have acted to put a stop to this pernicious activity: We know that drug dealing is closely linked to violence we see on the streets of London and cause great misery in our communities. That is exactly why disrupting the supply of drugs is a central part of our work to continue to tackle violence in the capital: By disrupting these drug supply lines, we have hopefully prevented associated violent incidents from occurring in the future.”…….All those arrested have been taken to police stations in south London.
