Day-long execution of search warrants on February 9 ends with several persons detained and taken into police custody

Several people were detained and taken into police custody, following the execution of several search warrants on February 9.

Reports say that lawmen from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), the Parham Police Station, and the FERU went on duty in the City and its outskirts and executed a warrant at “Lots to Love,” a business located upstairs the Vegetable Market Complex.   

As a result, an Urlings resident was arrested on suspicion of receiving and taken to the St. John’s Police Station.

Allegedly, further information provided to the Police led officers to “The Quad,” located on Fort Road.  A search was carried out and articles of clothing were found and seized for investigation purposes.

On the strength of additional information, yet another search was carried out in the Crabbe Hill area; however, nothing of interest was found there.

Officers commenced their operation at about 7 a.m. and it reportedly ended at about 9 p.m. that day.

Meanwhile, several of these officers went on duty at Scotts Hill, also on the afternoon of February 9, and executed a search warrant.  It yielded one black BB handgun, along with a number of articles of clothing, which were seized for further investigation.

The occupant of the house was arrested on suspicion of robbery and taken to the St. John’s Police Station.
