Two Arrested For $20K Drug Find

Two men spent the weekend in jail after they were arrested for possession of dangerous drugs amounting to $20,000.

According to reports on Friday around 6:30 p.m., officers from the Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) acting on information went to the Lucayan Harbour and searched two men with luggage.

Police found six clear plastic bags each containing a quantity of suspected marijuana in one of the suitcases.

The men ages 24 and 35-years-old were arrested and taken into police custody.

The marijuana had an estimated weight of 20 pounds.

Police expect to have the men arraigned in the Magistrate’s Court sometime this week.
This latest seizure for Grand Bahama police comes on the heels of two police finding of nearly $17 million worth of marijuana plants growing in the pine forest in East Grand Bahama.

On March 24, DEU officers, with other law enforcement agents, made the find around 4:00 p.m.
While on routine aerial patrols in the eastern area of Grand Bahama, some 27 marijuana plots were detected in a two-mile radius of undeveloped land.

A total of 167,000 plants were found with an estimated street value of $16.8 million.

Three men, one Bahamian and two Jamaicans, have since been arraigned for the drug find.
