Seized drugs not heading for Bermuda
Police believe drugs seized on a sailboat yesterday were not destined for Bermuda.
A 28-year-old Latvian man is currently in custody after his sailboat diverted to Bermuda due to mechanical problems.
A Police spokesman said: “The Bermuda Police Service in conjunction with HM Customs can confirm that a 28-year-old Latvian man is in police custody after a significant amount of illegal drugs, a firearm and ammunition was seized from his sailboat.
“He diverted to Bermuda after experiencing mechanical problems with his boat while traveling to Europe. Investigations conducted thus far suggest that this shipment of illegal drugs was not destined for Bermuda, however this seizure is another good example of cooperation between overseas law enforcement agencies as well as local agencies.”
