(CNS): Police have arrested two men who work as members of the civilian support staff in the Department of Immigration on drugs charges after they were picked up by officers on patrol near Patrick’s Island, George Town. An RCIPS spokesperson said that a uniform officer in an unmarked vehicle was patrolling the area in response to increased burglaries and reports of shoreline fishing on Saturday lunchtime (3 October) when he came across two men in a remote location in the bushes near Reverie Road. 

“When questioned, the men’s response and actions gave the officer cause to conduct a search, during which a quantity of drugs was found,” police stated. The men, aged 26 and 31 who are from George Town and West Bay, were arrested on suspicion of possession of cocaine, possession with intent to supply and possession of a drug utensil.

The men have not yet been charged and are currently on police bail.
