Police executed two search warrants today at the home of lawyer Justin Williams – one under the Firearms Act and the other under PACE.
Detective Superintendent Nicholas Pedro confirmed the raid at the lawyers residence on Point Shares Road in Fairylands.
Police vehicles were seen at the residence early Saturday morning around 6:30am throughout the day until Saturday afternoon.
“We are executing two warrants: one under the Firearms Act and another under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act, otherwise known as PACE, in relation to some ongoing investigations that we are conducting,” said Mr Pedro.
“If there is anybody in the neighbourhood that’s aware of anything they would like to speak to us about, they can speak to our Vulnerable Person Unit in confidence.”
He noted that police were investigating “several matters” – not just firearms.
“We are conducting some inquiries on the premises and have obtained warrants to search for evidence pursuant to those matters that we are investigating.
“That’s about all I can say at this point,” he said.
Mr Williams, who founded Williams Barristers & Attorneys, is a former President of the Bermuda Bar Council, who has also served as an acting Magistrate.
