Two Arrested After $100,000 Found

TWO men were arrested after police conducted a search and found them with more than $100,000 during a joint operation at western New Providence.

According to reports, shortly after 1pm Drug Enforcement Unit officers along with United States law enforcement officials searched the men who were in a vehicle at a parking lot.

The search yielded $109,650 in US currency.

Officers also carried out another search of the men’s home where additional US currency was found.

Police also arrested two other men in four separate incidents involving dangerous drugs Thursday.

In the first incident, shortly after 9am, Mobile Division Officers assisted by K-9 Officers, conducted a search of a home and property at John Road and recovered a quantity of suspected marijuana.

A man who was present at the home at the time of the search was taken into custody and is expected to be formally charged.

About three hours later, officers acting on information searched a bushy area at Mahogany Avenue, Pinewood Gardens and recovered what they suspect to be a quantity of marijuana. No arrest was made in this matter.

The third incident happened shortly after 1pm.

At the time, an abandoned building at Tina Avenue, off Joe Farrington Road was searched and a quantity of marijuana was found. Police said no one has been taken into custody.

In the fourth incident, shortly after 5pm, Mobile Division Officers were on routine patrols on Deveaux Street, when they saw a man sitting in a vehicle in the parking lot of a church.

Upon seeing the officers, the man started to act in a suspicious manner, police said.

Officers conducted a search of the man and his vehicle and recovered a quantity of suspected cocaine. The man was taken into custody and is expected to be formally charged.

Police said investigations are continuing.

I must apologize for laughing at this article. Here we are 2018 and we are still locking people up for a weed. I mean honestly. But, I do see some green shoots in the thinking here. I feel a groundswell of people feeling, why are we being left behind, again. Plus, they have seen a generation now of those who drank, those that snorted coke, and those who smoked weed. Need I say more. So, I think people are finally saying enough is enough of our kids having a police record because they were caught with a few joints, or god forbid, a few pounds of grass. Let's grow up. We need the money. Maybe then we won't have to stoop so low as to allow an oil refinery on Grand Bahama or drilling for oil in our pristine waters off Andros. And just maybe, more than the usual few will profit.

Did you read the same article I read above? No where did the article say that anyone was arrested for weed. I guess you simply imagine your facts to fit your commentary. SMH!
