Police in Birmingham have released CCTV footage of two men they want to identify who were caught dumping a gun.

It's thought they dropped it in front of a house in Balsall Heath after climbing over a wall in Cannon Hill Road just after midnight in November last year.

Police received an anonymous call claiming that a gun had been left there and officers went to the scene and recovered a shotgun.

The gun has been sent for forensic testing to see whether it has been used in any recent crime.


DI Gary Plant from Force CID said: “Enquiries are on-going to see whether the firearm has been used, but we really need to hear from anyone who may recognise these men; both men left the scene after leaving the gun in a plastic bag that they took from inside a carpenter’s type work bag. I’m confident someone out there will know who they are."

“I also want to hear from anyone who was in the area in the very early hours of November 2 − we know from CCTV that a number of cars were driving past."
