Several people were taken into police custody over a two-day period, after search warrants executed at their homes turned up illegal or stolen items.
Reports say that two warrants were executed on October 15 in All Saints.
In the first instance, lawmen went to the home of a 32-year-old McPond resident, at about 12:30 p.m.
While executing the warrant, they found a glass bottle containing an unknown quantity of a bushy substance resembling the controlled drug cannabis. The item was seized and taken to the All Saints Police Station for investigation purposes.
Meanwhile, the man was arrested on suspicion of unlawful wounding and taken to the St. John’s Police Station.
During the other operation, which took place at about 1:30 a.m., a search warrant was executed on the home of a 35-year-old man in the same area.
Officers reportedly found a solar panel; a solar light with cover; and a remote control. The items were taken to the All Saints Police Station for investigation purposes, while this suspect was also arrested on suspicion of unlawful wounding and taken downtown.
Another operation, on October 16, saw officers from the Criminal Investigations Department, All Saints Police Station, and the Special Services Unit returning to McPond, where a search warrant was executed on the premises of a 19 year-old.
Officers visited his home at about 4:30 a.m., and three pairs of white Nike sneakers and a pair of blue Jordan sneakers were found. He was arrested on suspicion of house break-in and larceny and taken to the St. John’s Police Station, along with the items.
Twenty minutes later, in the same area, officers went to the home of a 21-year-old man, and one pair of orange-and-white Nike shoes was found. He, too, was arrested on suspicion of house break-in and larceny and taken to St. John’s with the shoes.
Meanwhile, at about 3 a.m., officers on duty in All Saints searched another resident’s home, and three solar-panel batteries, one solar panel, one PlayStation, and three game consoles were found and seized.
The items were taken to the All Saints Police Station for investigation purposes and the man was arrested on suspicion of larceny.
