The West Midlands Police Vehicle Crime Taskforce executed a warrant following investigations around a unit on Moseley Road in Sparkbrook on Thursday morning.
Working in association with the Birmingham East neighbourhood taskforce, the raid led to the discovery of three stolen cars and the parts to two other vehicles, as well arrests.
Six men have now been charged: 40-year-old Karzan Ali of Copper Beech Gardens, Birmingham; 25-year-old Andrew Hancox-Lowe of Wychbury Road, Birmingham; 41-year-old Lukas Pribyl of Warwick Road, Birmingham; 30-year-old Jabbar Hussain of Sedgemore Road, Birmingham; 28-year-old Humza Babri Carol of Crescent, Halesowen; 28-year-old Mohsin Akram of Norland Road, Birmingham.
All were charged with handling stolen goods, which were established to have been stolen from the West Midlands, Staffordshire and Bedfordshire, and have been bailed to appear at Birmingham Magistrates Court on November 24.
A spokeswoman for West Midlands Police said: “We’ve charged six men after acting on intelligence and discovering a suspected chop shop in Birmingham.
“Our new Vehicle Crime Taskforce executed a warrant following investigations around a unit on Moseley Road, Sparkbrook, on Thursday morning (3 November) which we suspected was being used to break up stolen cars for parts.
“It was carried out with the support of the Birmingham East neighbourhood taskforce and led to the discovery of three stolen cars, and the parts to two other vehicles.
“These were established to have been stolen from the West Midlands, Staffordshire and Bedfordshire.
“We arrested six men – aged between 25 and 41 – on suspicion of handling stolen goods.
“The men, all from the West Midlands, have since been charged with this and bailed to appear before Birmingham Magistrates Court on 24 November.
“We recently launched a dedicated vehicle crime taskforce in response to rising levels of car theft across the region.
“The unit is able to act on emerging intelligence on crime patterns and suspects, step up patrols in hotspot areas and carry out targeted operations.
“It came into force in September and since then the number of crime theft reports is beginning to drop, we’ve made over 40 arrests, and improved our stolen vehicle recovery rate which is double to what it was this time last year.”
