Man arrested for having cannabis plants
A man was arrested after a passing police patrol saw suspected cannabis plants in flowerpots outside a house.
The officers were on mobile patrol when they saw the plants at a home on Pearman's Hill West, Warwick, at about 9.20am on Wednesday.
A Bermuda Police Service spokesman said: “Following inquiries, it was determined the plants belonged to a 22-year-old male occupant of the residence.
“A search of the occupant's apartment resulted in the discovery of a quantity of suspected cannabis as well as drug equipment.
“The occupant was subsequently arrested and detained.”
In a separate incident, customs officers at the airport reported that an arrival was found with plant material and cartridges believed to contain the cannabinoid THC at about 12.30pm the same day.
The police spokesman added: “The items were reportedly found during a search of the passenger's luggage inside the arrivals hall.
“The passenger, a US national, was arrested for importation of a controlled drug and later bailed.”
