Police arrest seven people, seize drugs, cash and illegal dogs in raids
Drugs, cash and four illegal dogs have been seized and seven people arrested in police raids on two houses in Devonshire and Smith’s.
Officers also took a hydroponics system used to grow cannabis indoors.
Warrants were executed on February 7 by the police drugs unit with the criminal investigation unit, financial crimes unit and tactical division but information was released this afternoon.
The raids netted more than $85,000 in cash and the suspected cocaine and cannabis had an estimated street value of $30,000.
Animal wardens helped police remove four illegal dogs from one of the properties.
Acting Detective Superintendent Sherwin Joseph, the officer in charge of the crime division, said: “This operation has disrupted and dismantled the drug trafficking and money-laundering activities of a drug trafficking ring here in Bermuda.
“Chemicals used in the illegal grow operation were also seized and will be further analysed by our government analysts.
“The investigation is at a critical stage and no further information will be provided at this time.”
The drugs unit is to continue investigations, a spokesman said.
