No formal charges have been laid yet, following three arrests last month, that netted an intercepted shipment of Cannabis with an estimated street value in excess of five million dollars.

Police and HM Customs officials conducted a joint operation dubbed, ‘Operation Minotaur’, on Monday, October 24.

A spokesman said: “The Bermuda Police Service (BPS), Drugs Unit was called in after officers from HM Customs intercepted a shipment found to contain approximately 120lbs of Cannabis.

“Warrants executed at a number of locations both in Pembroke and St George’s resulted in the arrests of three suspects in relation to this matter.”

Detective Superintendent (Acting) Sherwin Joseph of the Crime Division, stated at the time, that the “significant seizure” represents “a major success in the ongoing combined effort by both agencies, to combat drug importation and other forms of criminality at our boarders”.

It was also stated, that no further information would be provided at that time, as the investigation continues.
