Cash, cannabis and stun gun found in Black Country drug raids
Cash, cannabis and a range of weapons were seized during raids on two properties in the Black Country.
Two homes in Spring Meadow Road, Netherton, were raided by West Midlands Police on Thursday morning under the Misuse of Drugs Act.
A range of weapons - including a stun gun, knuckledusters, a machete and pepper spray - were found in a shed after officers smashed their way through the front door.
A large amount of cannabis was also found and officers seized cash which they suspect has been generated by dealing illegal drugs.
A 31-year-old man from the Dudley area was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply and firearms offences. He remained in custody on Thursday evening.
Dudley Neighbourhood Policing Manager, Inspector Pete Sandhu, said: "Warrants and arrests like this are made possible because of the excellent information we receive from the community as well as the incredible work of our intelligence teams.
“Piecing together existing intelligence we had about drug dealing in the Netherton area we were able to take action that has resulted in us securing a haul of vital evidence, weapons, drugs and a significant amount of cash.
“Without the support of the public it is difficult to get the intelligence we need to carry out targeted disruption of suspected criminals operating in our communities. But when people do speak up the results can be fantastic.”
