GRAND Bahama police arrested three men in connection with an armed robbery in the Hawksbill area.

According to police reports, a man was held up and robbed of his cell phone shortly before 7pm on Friday by a gunman brandishing a black handgun.

Officers responded quickly and arrested three men who are assisting police in their investigations into the matter.

Officers also recovered the stolen cell phone and a black imitation firearm.

Police also reported that five men – three Bahamians and two Jamaicans – were arrested in Abaco for possession of dangerous drugs over the weekend.

Abaco police executed a search warrant shortly after 5am at a home in Spring City, where they allegedly discovered a quantity of suspected marijuana. The occupants of the home were arrested and taken into custody.

They are expected to be formally charged in the Magistrate’s Court this week.
