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.
The men – aged between 22 and 37 – plus a 16-year-old boy were questioned yesterday and later charged with conspiring to supply Class A drugs.
Here’s who we’ve charged:
• Zulfikhar Khan, aged 28, from Primley Avenue, Hodge Hill
• Mohammed Hamza Butt, 22, from Cobham Road, Bordesley Green
• Mohammed Ishaq Khan, 37, from Knowle Road, Sparkhill
• Sohail Hussain, 28, from Priorygate Way, Bordesley Green
• Mohammed Imran Khan, 24, from Imperial Road, Bordesley Green
• Mohammed Riaz, 36, from Carlton Road, Bordesley Green
• Kaleem Khan, 34, from Arden Road, Saltley
• Nowshad Mohammed, 36, from Bordesley Green
• Anwar Awais, 25, from Allens Croft Road, Brandwood
• …and a 16-year-old boy from the Bordesley Green area.
They are all set to appear in Birmingham Magistrates Court today (21 Oct).
As part of our investigation we’ve seized heroin and cocaine with a street value of hundreds of thousands of pounds.
