British police have charged four men with offenses under the Terrorism Act Monday evening, after they were arrested in a series of raids in the central England town of Birmingham, the Associated Press reported.

Britain's Press Association is reporting that West Midlands police have charged three of the men with engaging in conduct with the intention of assisting in the commission of acts of terror. A fourth man was charged with failure to disclose information relating to terror.

All four men are aged between 29 and 34 and will appear at a London court Tuesday.

The four men were arrested after anti-terror raids on six homes and two commercial properties in Birmingham, 118 miles ( 190 kilometers) northwest of London on Oct. 21. A fifth man arrested in the raids was released without charge.
