Police find drugs in Precincts 1 and 2

Police on anti-drug operations in the city between 6:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. on Friday conducted searches within Precincts I and 2, and were focused on searching possible drug bases and uncovering concealed firearms and ammunition. They primarily targeted those with a criminal profile.

Police said that they searched 10 houses, and as a result 4 persons were arrested — 3 of whom were charged with possession of controlled drugs and one of whom was charged for drug trafficking.

Two of the persons charged are sisters who were busted with drugs when their house on Allan Pitts Crescent was searched. One was found with 29.4 grams of cannabis and was charged with possession of a controlled drug, while the other was found with 103.6 grams of cannabis. She was charged with drug trafficking.

Police also went to Iguana Street, and conducted a search of a house that led to the discovery of 36.9 grams of cannabis. The man who was in the house at the time of the search was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled drug.

They also went to the home of a stevedore on Water Lane, where they conducted a search and found 0.7 grams of cannabis. The man was arrested and charged for possession of controlled drugs.

Those who were arrested will be taken to court, where they will face charges for the different offenses.
