TWO brothers and three others have been arrested in a major drug bust in Birmingham which police hope has put a significant dent in the war on drugs in the city.
The arrests came during a day of action on December 3 that saw dozens of officers involved in raids on 10 addresses in the east of the city.
Warrants were executed at properties suspected of being used as drug dens in Saltley and Shard End.
Cocaine, heroin and cannabis with a combined street value of £130,000 (€143,000) were seized, while almost £50,000 (€55,000) in cash was recovered after a car was stopped in Soho Hill.
Two men have also been charged with firearms offences after a stash of weapons, including a sub-machine pistol, was discovered in a car in the Washwood Heath area in October.
Brothers Mohammed Deon Khalid, aged 23, and Mohammed Rehan Khalid from Ingleton Road have both been charged with conspiring to supply Class A drugs and firearms.
Three other men have been charged with drugs supply. They are:
• Zehfran Khan aged 30 from Maybank in Bordesley Green;
• Bilaal Khan aged 22 from Ash Road in Saltley;
• and Syed Islam aged 22 from Chetwynd Road in Ward End.
