Drug Dealers’ Cars Crushed

Schoolkids in Birmingham are going to be shown drug dealers’ luxury cars getting crushed.

Police are taking a mobile car crusher to Bordesley Green on Friday to show that crime doesn’t pay.

Officers are hoping it will stop youngsters growing-up thinking they can make a good living from becoming a career criminal.

The car crusher has the ability to lift a vehicle into its machinery before compacting it down into a three foot square cube in less than three minutes.

DCI Nick Walton, crime manager for Birmingham East, spoke to Free Radio:

“We hope this car crushing demonstration will show young people that drug dealing does not pay. No-one should benefit financially from being involved in criminal activity.

We will actively pursue anyone who we believe is benefitting financially from the harm they are causing to our communities.”
