West Midlands Police say they are investigating whether a Walsall man charged with firearms offences is an EHO as he claimed.

Jamie Jarrett, 28-years-old of Elmwood Road, Streetly, was arrested on 4 October along with three other men. He gave his job title as ‘environmental health officer’ on the custody sheet.

The police said Mr Jarrett had been charged with conspiracy to possess a firearm, conspiracy to possess ammunition and also possession of a firearm.

Two men were charged with conspiracy to possess a firearm and conspiracy to possess ammunition.

Another man was charged with conspiracy to possess a firearm, conspiracy to possess ammunition and two counts of possession with intent to supply cocaine.

But the CIEH said it had no record of a Jamie, or James, Jarrett as being an EHO. Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council also told EHN they had no employee of that name.

The EHO job title is protected by law and falsely claiming to be an EHO is an offence.

EHN informed West Midlands Police there were no records to back his claim. A police spokesperson said they would ‘look into it’.

The four men appeared at Birmingham magistrates court on 5 October and were remanded in custody. They will next appear at Birmingham Crown Court on 13 January 2014.

A fifth man was bailed pending further enquiries.
