Consistent with the Commissioner’s Policing Priorities for 2017, Police have struck a significant blow to the operations of drug traffickers with the seizure of a huge amount of marijuana and the arrest of three men in Andros on Monday 7th August 2017.

According to reports, around 4:30pm, a team of officers from the North Andros Division went to an area in Fresh Creek, where they met a go-fast boat, which appeared to have run aground. The officers conducted a search of the nearby bushes, where they uncovered 78 large packages containing nearly three thousand pounds of marijuana and arrested three adult males. The estimated street value for the drugs is just under, three million dollars
Investigations are ongoing.

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 1-242-300-8476 (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.
