SOLIHULL police ecovered a Glock handgun and arrested a man after a collision involving two cars in Birmingham.

They were to Shirley Road in Hall Green after a Jaguar and a Tesla collided just before 6pm on Friday May 19.

A number of people who were in the Jaguar made off in the car, but one man was held at the scene by the Tesla driver.

When police arrived and searched the Jaguar, a 9mm Glock was found in a small bag.

The 28-year-old man who was held at the scene was arrested and taken to hospital, before being released into our custody today.

He will be questioned on suspicion of possession of a firearm and possession of cocaine, and enquiries continue.




A police spokesperson said: “We’re committed to tackling serious and organised crime in the West Midlands, and earlier this month launched Operation Target.

“It brings together our efforts to tackle a range of crimes, from firearms to drug dealing and burglary, to cyber-crime and fraud.”


Officers will be using local intelligence, seizing goods, carrying out warrants and targeting offenders as part of Op Target’s ongoing crackdown against serious and organised crime.
