THREE found guilty of double crossbow killing at illicit cannabis factory.
Three men have been found guilty after two men died during a gang raid on illicit cannabis factory. Two men, Waseem Ramzan, aged 36, and Khuzaimah Douglas, aged 19, were fatally wounded by crossbow bolts as a battle broke out in Pensnett Road, Brierley Hill in Birmingham during an early morning raid on February 20, 2020.
During the trial the court heard how Mr Ramzan was believed to be protecting his illegal drugs farm and that Mr Douglas, also deceased, was on the other side and involved with the party raiding the cannabis factory.
Wolverhampton Crown Court found three men guilty after a three-week trial. Saghawat Ramzan, aged 47, of Pensnett Road, has been found guilty of double murder and killed both his own brother Waseem and Mr Douglas.
Meanwhile Omar Ramzan, aged 24, who lived with his father Saghawat, has been found guilty of the manslaughter of Waseem Ramzan, and the murder of Mr Douglas. Mohammed Sageer, aged 33, was also found guilty of the same offences as Omar.
The carnage came as a group of at least 10 burglars followed through on a pre-planned raid of the illicit cannabis factory in Pensnett Road. The factory held over £200,000 worth of cannabis.
While it was claimed that Mr Douglas’s death was in self-defence, the prosecution argued that a message was been sent to warn others of attacking the cannabis farm in future. The three men will be sentenced in March.
