Police have recovered two loaded handguns and live ammunition after raiding a house in Tipton.
Officers found the firearms at 2.45am this morning (19 May) at a property on Victoria Road.
One weapon was found under floorboards in the bathroom; the other was hidden under a bed.
A 35-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of possession of firearms and ammunition, as well as possession of Class A drugs, after a wrap of what is believed to be heroin was also found.
Each of these loaded weapons represents lives potentially being saved and the West Midlands is a safer place tonight now that they’re off the streets.

Police are appealing for witnesses as a young man remains in a critical condition in hospital after being hit by a car as he tried to cross a busy road on Thursday 21 January.
The 16-year-old was hit by a silver Toyota Aygo just after 5.30pm at the traffic lights controlled junction of Bilston Road and Farmer Way, Gospel Oak, near to the Gospel Oak Public House.
He sustained serious head injuries and continues to receive hospital treatment.
Officers have spoken to the driver of the Aygo, who stopped at the scene, and the road was closed for several hours whilst specialist accident reconstruction officers tried to piece together what happened.
Sergeant Alan Wood, from the Regional Collision Investigation Unit, said:
This is a busy road, particularly at this time of the day. A number of witnesses have already come forward but I would appeal to anyone else who may have seen the incident to contact us to help us establish exactly what happened.
