#AceNewsReport – May.30: Officers heard how lots of people were visiting the unit at different times of day, lots of wiring and ventilation ducts were visible, and a police drone picked up a considerable heat source from above:

WM Police Officers have uncovered a Bitcoin ‘mine’ during industrial unit raid: Officers forced entry to the premises in Great Bridge Industrial Estate, Sandwell, on 18 May on the back of intelligence suggesting it was being used as a cannabis farm.

Crypto

They are all classic cannabis factory signs – but when officers gained entry they found a huge bank of around 100 computer units as part of what’s understood to be a Bitcoin mining operation.

The IT equipment was seized and enquiries with Western Power revealed the electric supply had been bypassed and thousands of pounds worth had been stolen to power the ‘mine’.

Sandwell Police Sergeant Jennifer Griffin, said: “It’s certainly not what we were expecting! It had all the hallmarks of a cannabis cultivation set-up and I believe it’s only the second such crypto mine we’ve encountered in the West Midlands.

“My understanding is that mining for cryptocurrency is not itself illegal but clearly abstracting electricity from the mains supply to power it is.

“We’ve seized the equipment and will be looking into permanently seizing it under the Proceeds of Crime Act. No-one was at the unit at the time of the warrant and no arrests have been made – but we’ll be making enquiries with the unit’s owner.”

The warrant was one of almost 50 executed as part of County Lines Intensification Week (17-23 May) which led to 84 arrests, significant drug seizures and the recovery of weapons including a sawn-off shotgun and a blank firing pistol converted to discharge live rounds.

22nd May 2021

Police are examining the scene and have been speaking to potential witnesses: We are appealing directly to the mother of this little boy – we believe she may be in need of medical assistance – and our primary concern at this time is to make sure she is okay, both physically and mentally.

Equally, anyone who may know who this woman is, for example anyone who may have recently been pregnant, but isn’t now, is urged to contact us.

This information can be given to us in the strictest of confidence if preferred.

We’re also appealing to anyone who may have been in the area over the past few days who saw anything suspicious to get in touch.

The baby could have been in the water for up to four days so anyone who may have seen anything, no matter how small it may seem is urged to contact us.

We are working with paediatric pathologists and a forensic post mortem will take place next week to help determine the cause of death.

Detective Chief Inspector Jim Munro, from our force CID, said: “This discovery is simply tragic. The death of this baby is absolutely heart-breaking: “ Our priority at this time is finding the little boy’s mother: “ We’re also working with partners in health, social care and education to see if they can help us identify his mother: “ I realise how distressing this tragedy is for the local community, but please don’t speculate on the circumstances of this upsetting incident, it hinders our investigation and is painful for those involved.”

Chief Superintendent Andy Parsons, from Walsall Police, said: “ I’m shocked and saddened about this deeply tragic discovery: “ My thoughts are with him and the wider community who I know are upset and concerned about the nature of what happened: “ We’ve got local officers in the area offering reassurance, please do speak to them if you have any concerns.”
