Results of Operation High Crime, Lozells

We're waiting for Abdmalik Yusuf to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear West Midlands Police,

I was stopped by police claiming that my vehicle matched a car that was supplying drugs in the area. It was a rented vehicle (Vauxhall Mokka) and having lived in the area I know for a fact that there wasn't any similiar cars in the area let alone supplying drugs. I then questioned the officers saying why the sudden increase in police presence in the area. I was told there was an operation going on named High Crime. (I was stopped 26 September on Lozells Rd) I am now curious as to the results of the operation. Is my area safer?

Yours faithfully,
Abdmalik Yusuf
