10 charged with drugs supply plot following major operation

We’ve charged nine men and a boy with plotting to supply large amounts of drugs following one of our biggest operations in recent history.

Yesterday morning around 150 officers teamed up to hit 10 addresses across east Birmingham who we suspect are linked to supplying crack cocaine and heroin, plus several violent incidents.
