(CNS): Police say they have arrested another West Bay man on suspicion of drug dealing following a second raid in the district this week. At 12:45pm on Thursday 24 October, officers from the Drugs and Serious Crime Task Force and Operational Support Unit carried out a drugs operation in Caboose Lane, West Bay. An RCIPS spokesperson said that more than 20 glass containers of compressed ganja were seized from the property and a 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of ganja with intent to supply and consumption. In a separate incident, a man was also arrested last night in Bodden Town for possession of what was described as “not a substantial amount” of ganja and cocaine.

The police said that the ganja seized in the West Bay operation weighed around 10lbs and the suspect is currently detained in police custody. The latest arrested comes following a bust in the Turtle Crescent area in West Bay, in whichthree men were arrested and 150lbs of ganja seized. One of those men has now been charged with importation and supplying drugs.

In the Bodden Town incident, Police say that at 9:15 thursday night officers engaged in special operations to address the concerns around  the Coe Wood Beach area arrested a 46-year-old man for possession of cocaine and ganja. He was later released on police bail.

Chief Inspector Brad Ebanks said, “Although it was not a substantial amount, we will address all breaches of the law, whether it be misuse of drugs or anti-social behaviour.  Matters that concern the public are of paramount importance and I would ask anyone who wishes to report anti-social or illegal activity to contact Bodden Town police station.”
