Consistent with the Commissioner's Policing Priorities for 2017, police took two Royal Bahamas Defence Officers along with two other males into custody following the seizure of a quantity of dangerous drugs in separate incidents over a 24 hour period.

In the first incident, around 7:00pm on Thursday 15th June 2017, officers from the Tourism Policing Unit were on routine foot patrol on Marlborough Street, when they observed a vehicle driving in a reckless manner. The Officers signaled to the vehicle to stop and accosted the two male occupants, one of whom was a Royal Bahamas Defence Force Officer. The officers conducted a search of the vehicle and found a quantity of marijuana. The RBDF officer and the other male were subsequently taken into custody and are expected to appear in court early next week to be formally charged.
