22 ARRESTED IN OVERNIGHT POLICE OPERATION

Consistent with the Commissioner's Policing Plan for 2017, police intensified their island-wide assault on crime Wednesday night with an operation led by the Selective Enforcement Team.

The anti-crime operation is aimed at suppressing crime in a number of areas and to send a clear message to those responsible for committing criminal acts on members of our communities that the police will proactively identify them and ensure that they are prosecuted and brought to justice.

Last night's operation led to 22 persons being arrested for a number of major offenses including: Murder, Armed Robbery, Possession of Dangerous Drugs, Stolen Vehicle, Firearms and Stealing.

Police wish to reassure members of the public, that they are utilizing all resources to ensure that these brazen and heartless criminals who continue to be engaged in criminal activities are arrested and brought to justice.

However, the Police cannot do it alone and are urging members of the public who may have relevant information regarding any criminal offence or information regarding anyone who may be in possession of illegal firearms to immediately to come forward and share the information.

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)
