Cannabis plants seized by police in separate operations
Police discovered a “substantial” amount of cannabis at a Hamilton Parish home last week when they assisted dog wardens in the seizure of several animals.
A police spokeswoman said that members of the Bermuda Police Service’s tactical unit helped animal wardens in a search of the property on August 18, which resulted in seven dogs being seized.
She said: “During the search, officers discovered a substantial amount of cannabis plants, some measuring as tall as 5ft 7in in height.”
One man was arrested on suspicion of cultivation, and the plants were seized.
The spokeswoman added that more plants were seized in an unrelated raid by the Tactical Operations Division on Sunday.
“They discovered a large quantity of cannabis plants in the yard of a Devonshire residence, growing at heights of up to 5ft 9in tall,” she said.
“The plants have been seized under the Misuse of Drugs Act.”
Anyone with information related to either investigation was asked to contact the police support unit on 247-1784.
Anyone with information about any other crimes in their neighbourhood was asked to call 295-0011, the non-emergency contact centre on 211 or the confidential Crime Stoppers line on 800-8477.
