Nassau, Bahamas - Consistent with the Commissioner’s Policing Priorities for 2017, courageous and alert Police Officers seized another illegal handgun out of the hands of two criminals on Friday 8th September 2017.

According to reports, shortly after 5:30pm, officers assigned to the Selective Enforcement Team were on routine patrol in Union Village, when they intercepted a Honda vehicle occupied by two males. The two males and the vehicle were then searched. During the search a .45 Taurus handgun containing 10 rounds of ammunition was found.

The two males were subsequently arrested.

POLICE URGING ANYONE WITH ANY INFORMATION ON ILLEGAL
FIREARMS IN THEIR COMMUNITIES, NO MATTER HOW SMALL OR INSIGNIFICANT (THE TIP) MAY SEEM, TO ANONYMOUSLY CONTACT THE POLICE AT 919 OR CRIME STOPPERS AT 328-TIPS (8477) (NEW PROVIDENCE) OR 1-242-300-8476 (FAMILY ISLANDS)

WEEKLY PREVENTION CRIME TIP - If a crime occurs – report it!

Everyone should consider it his/her responsibility to report crime. Many criminals target favorite areas and have predictable methods of operation. When you report all the facts about a crime, it helps the police assign officers in the places where crimes are occurring or where they are most likely to occur. If you don’t report crime, this allows the criminal to continue to operate without interference.

In many cases, it is the information provided by victims and witnesses that leads to the arrest of a criminal. So tell the police as much as you can; no fact is too trivial. The police need the eyes and ears of all citizens.
