A teenager was arrested and drugs seized after police executed two search warrants in the Town of St George following reports of drug dealing.

A police spokesman said police carried out searches at a home on Queen Street along with “a location on King’s Square” on Friday.

The spokesman said: “During the exercise headed by Inspector Shakisha Minors and Acting Inspector Anthony Smith, a quantity of controlled drugs was seized.

“The items seized have been sent to the Government Analyst for testing.

“An 18-year-old male suspect was arrested for outstanding warrants, as well as possession of bladed weapons. He has since been released on police bail.”

Chief Inspector Robert Cardwell, of the Tactical Support Division, said: "This is an example of what can be achieved when the public works to assist the Bermuda Police Service in making Bermuda safer.

“Individuals concerned for their community came forward and provided information which enabled us make these seizures. We would like to thank those members of the public."
