DEU OFFICERS MAKE LARGE DRUG SEIZURE, 2 HAITIAN NATIONALS IN CUSTODY
Nassau, Bahamas — A 60 – year-old Haitian man and a 53 – year-old Haitian woman are in custody following a large drug seizure that occurred on Monday afternoon.
According to reports, shortly before 2:00pm, a team of officers from the Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) acting on intelligence executed a search warrant at a home located at Balls Alley off Shirley Street, where they uncovered 37 1⁄2 pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of 37,000.00 and a half (1⁄2) pound of cocaine with an estimated street value of $5,000.00.
The two suspects were taken into custody and are expected to appear in court later this week to be formally charged.
BP wonders if they have any status to be in the country.
