Brownhills drug haul 'one of the largest' in force's history

This is the largest seizure of drugs I have secured in my 24 year career with West Midlands Police. It is also one of the largest in the force’s 39 year history.

The impact this seizure will have on drug dealing in the region and the UK as a whole cannot be underestimated.

The drugs had almost certainly been packed to order ready for shipping within Britain but possibly even further afield.

Our operation will have a national effect and we are working closely with a range of law enforcement agencies to identify those involved in this crime at whatever level.

– Detective Sergeant Carl Russell, West Midlands Police
