A sixteen year-old boy is due to appear in court today (Friday, May 26) facing charges of possession of a prohibited weapon and possession with intent to supply class A and class B drugs.
He was arrested along with Jayden and Kye Lemathy as officers from the West Midlands Police Organised Crime and Gangs Team raided addresses in Holte Road, Aston.
Officers found a sawn off shotgun, stolen cars and large quantities of drugs at the addresses in Birmingham when they executed a firearms warrant in January this year. The operation followed intelligence gathered from the community.
Jayden Lemathy, aged 29, was charged with possession of a prohibited weapon and possession with intent to supply class A and class B drugs on Tuesday (May 23). He was due to appear at Birmingham Magistrates Court yesterday.
Kye Lemathy, aged 19, was charged with possession with intent to supply class A and class B drugs and associated proceeds of crime act offences in February. He has since been charged with possession of a prohibited weapon and has been remanded into custody pending trial later this year.
A spokesperson for WMP said: “We’re relentless in our fight against organised crime and have launched Operation Target, which involves officers using local intelligence, seizing goods, carrying out warrants and targeting offenders as part of our ongoing crackdown to stop those involved in serious crime.”
