Coventry Editorial 15th Apr, 2024   0

FOUR PEOPLE have been arrested in Coventry and a large amount of drugs and stolen goods seized.

Members of the Priority Crime team, along with neighbourhood officers, carried out a warrant in Stoney Stanton Road on Friday.

Inside the address they found four people, one who was trying to hide in the loft space.

All four were arrested, with three – two men, aged 65 and 44, and a 36-year-old woman – subsequently bailed having been arrested for possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, handling stolen goods and possession of an offensive weapon.

The remaining suspect, a 42-year-old man, remains in custody for breaching the terms of a Criminal Behaviour Order and possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

Inside the property, officers discovered a large amount of suspected crack cocaine, heroin and cannabis. Dozens of stolen phones and electronics and stolen clothing and bicycles were also found.




A haul of weapons, including an imitation gun, a knuckleduster-Taser and a sword were also seized by police, along with a large amount of cash and two dogs – they have been taken to our specialist kennels.

Enquiries are now ongoing to examine the drugs and money and reunite some of the stolen goods with their rightful owners.


A West Midlands Police spokesperson said: “We are continuing to take action against drug dealing and organised crime in Coventry, with our teams regularly carrying out warrants and acting on information and intel from the community.
