Birmingham police find two guns in Washwood heath raid

A man has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder and two firearms have been recovered after a warrant in Birmingham.

Officers from our Major Crimes Team carried out an arrest warrant in Upper Marshall Street this morning, which resulted in a 21-year-old man being arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder, possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, and possession of an illegal firearm.

This is in relation to an incident in Washwood Heath in April this year in which a man was shot in the abdomen and leg.

He remains in custody at this time.

In addition to the arrest, officers recovered two handguns and a quantity of cash and Class A drugs.

Also found were a number of cutting agents, scales and drug bags.

We’ve recently launched a major new operation to target serious and organised crime across the West Midlands, and bring offenders to justice.


Operation Target sees West Midlands Police taking a defiant stand against a range of serious and organised crime offences – from drug dealing and burglary, to cyber-crime and fraud.

Officers are using local intelligence, seizing goods, carrying out warrants and targeting offenders as part of Op Target’s ongoing crackdown against serious and organised crime.
