THIS is the dramatic moment Britain’s ‘FBI’ cops swoop on a gang during a huge weapons raid.
Elite officers from the National Crime Agency point assault rifles at the gangsters as they scream “get on your f***ing belly!”
Cops cuffed Carl Brookes, 38, Richard Davis, 36, Callum Meah, 26, Jordan Feeney, 28, and Robert Clark, 32, in the sting after boxing in their BMW in バーミンガム.
に hair-raising body-cam footage, officers can be heard shouting: “Armed police, stay where you are, on the ground.
“Get on the floor now. Put your hands in the air. Keep them there.”
After dragging one thug from the car in Muirfield Gardens, Kings Norton, another screams: “Get out, stay there, on your f***ing belly.
“Put your hands behind your back. Don’t move.”
Officers seized a cowboy-style loaded handgun, 弾薬, knives and a sledgehammer from the mobsters during the raid.
Cops said the thugs were “dressed up and kitted out to do some harm” following the terrifying May 13 raid last year.
クラーク, donning a rolled up balaclava on his head, was also found carrying a knife in his inside pocket.
The Birmingham men were all charged with possession of a prohibited firearm, possession of prohibited ammunition, possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.
They were also charged with possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence and
Clark was charged with possession of a bladed article.
All five men pleaded guilty and were sentenced November 8, to jail for between five and seven years at Birmingham Crown Court.
NCA Birmingham Branch Commander Mick Pope said: “There is no doubt in my mind that these men were dressed up and kitted out to cause somebody, somewhere, some harm.
“And it is only the intervention of NCA officers that prevented this from happening.”
Mr Pope urged anyone with information about illegally held firearms to come contact the police or alternatively, Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
