A business was robbed at gunpoint and two men were arrested in connection with possession of dangerous drugs in Freeport, police reported.

Assistant Superintendent of Police Terecita Pinder reported that sometime shortly before 9pm on Tuesday, two men, one armed with a handgun, entered an establishment on Kennedy Drive and demanded cash from the cashier.

After robbing the employee, the men fled the area on foot. No arrests have been made and police are continuing their investigations into the matter.

In other crime news, three men were arrested after a quantity of dangerous drugs were discovered at  a residence in Freeport.

According to reports, shortly before 3pm on Tuesday officers of the Central Division and Rapid Response executed a search warrant at a residence on Redwood Lane, where they discovered a quantity of suspected marijuana. As a result, three male occupants were taken into police custody.

Abaco police also arrested two men after they were allegedly found with illegal drugs and with suspected marijuana plants growing at a residence on that island.

According to ASP Pinder, sometime around 7pm on Tuesday a team of officers acting on information went to a residence in Spring City where they allegedly found two men with the drugs and suspected marijuana plants.

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