Following on from concerns raised with us by local residents about what most preferred to describe as a ‘Police raid’ on premises on Station Road on Wednesday 30th June, we have procured a statement from the West Midlands Police in connection with the reported sightings as follows:
Detective Inspector Kay Wallace said:
“On Wednesday 30 January officers from West Midlands Police’s Child Online Safeguarding team executed a warrant on Station Road, Balsall Common.
“A man was arrested and subsequently bailed as part of this ongoing investigation.
“We appreciated that arrests of this nature can cause concern and we invite anyone who has any concerns about this, or any other matter, to contact the local policing team by calling 101.”
