Reports are that shortly before 8:00am, officers of the Drug Enforcement Unit and officers of the Bimini District in a joint operation, intercepted a 26 ft. aqua and white “contender” vessel in waters north of Alice Town, Bimini. Officers boarded the vessel and arrested two males on board and discovered two white coolers and two backpacks all containing a number of packages of suspected cocaine. The estimated street value of the drugs is 2.3 million dollars.

The suspected cocaine and the two males who are residents of Bimini were taken into police custody and are expected to be arraigned before the Magistrate Court in New Providence early next week.

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.

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.
