Drugs and weapons seized during proactive patrols in Birmingham
Class A and B drugs were among the items seized when officers carried out proactive patrols in an area of southeast Birmingham.
Officers from the Lyndon, Elmdon, Olton & Silhill (LEOS) Neighborhood Policing Team seized cash, a burner phone and lock knife along with drugs during the operation to return the streets safer. The team says they will continue to use different tactics to fight drugs and guns within the community and make it difficult for criminals to operate.
He said in a tweet: “LEOS officers conducted proactive patrols in the area which led to the seizure of class A and B drugs, cash, a burner phone and a lock knife. These are drugs and guns off YOUR streets! We will continue to use different tactics to fight drugs and guns in your community.”
West Midlands Police are running a #lifeorknife campaign which encourages children to talk about knife crime with their parents, teachers and peers.
