Solihull Editorial 19th Feb, 2024   0

A SOLIHULL man has been handed a community order after a drugs ring was shut down.

The 28-year-old was one of four sentenced at Birmingham Crown Court for their part in a phone link which co-ordinated deals with customers travelling from Warwickshire to Birmingham to collect drugs.

West Midlands Police said its Our County Lines Taskforce acted on information and brought down the drugs ring dealing crack cocaine and heroin.

Officers seized more than five kilos of drugs during warrants carried out at address in Birmingham in January 2021.

West Midlands Police said Mohammed Akub and Sajid Mahmood were at the heart of the drugs line and Yousef Mahmood and Nomaan Shahid acted as runners and collected money.

They were convicted for their role in the drugs network between April 2000 and January 2021.




Sajid Mahmood, aged 51 from Small Heath, was jailed for nine-and-a-half years for conspiracy to supply Class A drugs

Mohammed Akub, aged 29 from Small Heath, was jailed for nine-and-a-half years for conspiracy to supply Class A drugs


Nomaan Shahid, aged 29 from Small Heath, was jailed for six years and four months for conspiracy to supply Class A drugs

Yousef Mahmood, aged 30 from Bordesley Green, received a 20 month suspended sentence for being concerned in the supply of class A.

A man from Solihull was given 12 month community order for allowing his premises to be used for class A supply.
