Nassau, Bahamas - The enduring and dedicated work of the men and women of the Royal Bahamas Police Force, has led to illegal firearms, ammunition and a quantity of dangerous drugs being recovered from the streets of New Providence, Monday, 17th February, 2020.
According to reports, shortly after 11:00pm, South Eastern Division Officers were on patrol on Baillou Hill Road, when they observed two men walking. Upon seeing the officers, one of the men who was carrying a green bag, dropped the bag. The officers became suspicious, approached the men and conducted a search of the men and the bag, and recovered three (3) 9 millimeter pistols, three (3) magazine, eighty-two (82) rounds of ammunition, 1 pound of suspected marijuana and 12 oz. of cocaine.
The men were taken into custody and are expected to be formally charged before a Magistrate Court this week.
PERSONAL SAFETY TIPS -
- Think about your safety before you leave home; make sure someone
knows where you are going, who you are with and what time you are likely
- Fully charge your mobile phone and keep it with you so you can
keep in contact with your friends and family and ring police should you
- Walking home in the dark is never a good idea, but if you
absolutely must, try to walk with a friend, keep no busy, well-lit roads
even if it means taking a longer route.
- If you think someone is following you, go to the nearest place
where there are people and ask for help, or, if you can't find somewhere
or you are worried about someone's behaviour towards you in any way,
- Don't be afraid about being wrong or over-reacting; the Police
would rather be called only to find that all is well, than be dealing
with an incident because someone was afraid of calling them.
- Always try to be aware of what and who is around you and avoid putting yourself in a potentially dangerous situation.
- And remember, it might not be you that is in danger - if you see
anything you think is suspicious call the police - better safe than
