Solihull Editorial 4th Dec, 2015 Updated: 24th Oct, 2016

A SOLIHULL man living in a council house has been found guilty of possessing Class A drugs.

Tyrone Borland was living in a property managed by Solihull Community Housing (SCH) when police found him to be in possession of a Class A drug.

Officers also found drug related paraphernalia that suggested he was dealing from the house on Alder Drive in Chelmsley Wood.

In 2013, 12 cannabis plants and related paraphernalia were found at Mr Borland’s property and he was warned that any further incidents of this nature would lead SCH to take enforcement action against his tenancy.

But following a search on Friday, November 13 revealed 26-year-old Borland had breached this warning.

He appeared at Birmingham Magistrates Court having been served with a closure notice by SCH.

Borland subsequently gave up his tenancy and is living with relatives while the property is closed for three months.
