Commissioner Targeting Drug lords

Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade sending a no non-sense warning to those involved in th illicit drug trade.

While at police headquarters this week, the commissioner expressed concern for the number of interdictions that has happened for the year.

He said those involved in the drug trade are simply getting bolder and bolder.

“We have arrested far too many persons in possession of large quantities of illegal drugs mainly cocaine, marijuana, and other substances only to see those persons again being arrested for another major shipment of drugs,” he said.

The commissioner assured that those caught in the possession of illegal drugs will not be let off the hook as they too often end up dead or killing.

“We see this as a signature of death. If you sell drugs long enough you are inviting other bad people to come to your residence and at some point there’s a crossline and someone dies. We’ve seen too, any incidents like that where people selling drugs end up dying or killing people to protect that product of death that they have or their turf,” Mr. Greenslade said.

New Providence, Grand Bahama, and Abaco top the list of islands with the most drug interdictions.

While the Drug Enforcement Unit has not yet released an estimate number of interdictions this year, the commissioner said he did not see numbers this high this early in 2016.
