A further six men have been charged with burglary offences after cannabis farm raid in Brierley Hill which left two men dead.

The police cordon on Pensnett Road, next to the house which was raided before the stabbings.

Three men were previously charged with the murders of Khuzaimah Douglas, 19, and Waseem Ramzan, 26, who were shot with a crossbow during the aftermath of the Pensnett Road raid in February.

Mr Douglas and Mr Ramzan were killed on February 20 after an attempted burglary at a cannabis farm in Brockmoor turned into a violent brawl.

West Midlands Police detectives investigating the murder have now charged a further six men with a range of burglary matters, allegedly connected to the cannabis factory robbery.

Theo Bailey, 28, from Victoria Road, in Handsworth, was charged on Tuesday, with aggravated burglary, while Troy Parkins, 25, of Claughton Road, in Dudley, was charged with two counts of aggravated burglary.

Omari Beckford, 25, from Lewis Street, in Walsall, was charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit aggravated burglary and a further charge of conspiracy to commit aggravated burglary, relating to a separate series of cannabis factory robberies.

A further three men were charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit aggravated burglary on Wednesday night and were due to appear at Wolverhampton Magistrates Court today. They are Amir Naisiri, 22, from Swinford Road, in Selly Oak; Jason Kavanagh, 20, of Swinford Road, Weoley Castle; and Godfree Mbugoniwia, 22, from Brunswick Road, in Sparkhill.

Mbugoniwia was also charged with an additional conspiracy to commit aggravated burglary in relation to a series of offences across the West Midlands in December last year. As part of this series, but not connected to the Pensnett Road raid, another two men – William Thompson, 26, of Sedgehill Avenue, Harborne, and Aldane McKenzie, 26, from Newick Grove, in Kings Heath – have been charged in relation to conspiracy to burgle cannabis farms across the West Midlands area.

Six other people have been charged in connection with the Pensnett Road incident including father and son Saghawat Ramzan, 46, and Omar Ramzan, 23, who live on Pensnett Road, who have also been charged with two counts of murder. They are currently in prison on remand.

Last month, police charged a third man with two counts of murder – Sageer Moahmmed, 33, of Gorsty Avenue, in Brierley Hill.

Birmingham men Lewis Graver, 21, and Said Ammai, 23, Micah Evans, 19, of Drummond Street, Lye, and Bradley Knight, 22, of Tugford Road, Bourneville, have been charged with conspiracy to burgle in connection with the incident.

Detective Chief Inspector Jim Munro from West Midlands Police's homicide team said: “Our investigation has been detailed as we remain committed to finding out exactly what happened that fatal early morning.

"Two men sadly lost their lives and we’re determined to bring those responsible to justice.”

Enquiries are continuing and anyone with information is urged to call West Midlands Police on 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
