Eleuthera,Bahamas - Police in Eleuthera took a man into custody following the seizure of a quantity of dangerous drugs on Tuesday 31st October 2017.

Reports are shortly after 8:00pm officers assigned to the Eleuthera District were on routine patrol on Queens Highway, South Eleuthera, when they saw a man standing by a club acting suspiciously. The man on seeing the officers fled on foot and was captured shortly thereafter. The suspect was searched and a quantity of marijuana was found in his possession. The suspect was subsequently taken into custody.

POLICE ARE APPEALING TO THE PUBLIC TO SHARE INFORMATION ON ANY
ILLEGAL/SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES IN THEIR COMMUNITIES, NO MATTER HOW SMALL OR INSIGNIFICANT (THE TIP) MAY SEEM, MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC ARE URGED TO ANONYMOUSLY CONTACT THE POLICE AT 919 OR CRIME STOPPERS AT 328-TIPS (8477) (NEW PROVIDENCE) OR 1-242-300-8477 (FAMILY ISLANDS)

CRIME PREVENTION TIP OF THE WEEK - 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.
