Five high-performance cars involved in serious crime seized by Solihull Police

Solihull Editorial 30th Apr, 2023   0

A TOTAL of five valuable cars – all involved in crime – have been seized by Solihull Police.

Officers were alerted by Solihull Hospital security staff who noticed the high-performance cars, including one worth £30,000 had been left in the car park for more than three weeks.

Staff also saw suspicious behaviour around the cars in the late hours of the night.

Officers from our St Alphege Nighbourhood Team linked in with the hospital and did various intelligence checks on the cars.

The checks revealed that all five cars were involved in criminal activity including drug crime and officers swiftly seized them. They are now being forensically examined.

Sgt Matt Harris, Neighbourhood Policing Supervisor for St Alphege, said: “Our neighbourhood officers deal with issues that you tell us are important for us to deal with.




“We listened to hospital security staff and acted on this information. We found the cars were being stored at the hospital car park and used when needed and have been linked to criminal activity.”

The hospital had put fixed-penalty notices on the cars and officers worked with them to help get the cars removed.


Sgt Harris added: “Intelligence we receive can be crucial, so please tell us about suspicious activity or if you know people involved in crime, so that we can step in and take action.”
