A SHELDON woman has been jailed for her involvement in running a County Lines drugs line around Birmingham.

Haleema Akhtar was sentenced jailed for two years and three months for her part in Tiger Line.

The Tiger Line would send out bulk messages advertising the availability to drugs users – to be sold across Birmingham.

West Midlands Police said officers found large quantities of crack cocaine and heroin, a significant amount of cash, and mobile phones linked to the Tiger Line during a raid in November.

The 28-year-old was sentenced alongside Mohsin Ali, 28, – who received a six years and nine months – at Birmingham Crown Court.




West Midlands Police said: “County Lines are the phone lines that drug dealers use to sell drugs around the country.

“These drugs lines often exploit young people and vulnerable adults to store, produce and sell drugs.


“We regularly take action against suspected county lines activity across our local policing areas.”

Anyone with information about drug dealing where they live should contact police on 101 or via Live Chat on the force’s website.
