The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) today confirmed two separate sting operations that led to the seizure of a “substantial” amount of cannabis at a Hamilton Parish home last week and another bust in Devonshire.

A police spokeswoman said members of the BPS tactical unit assisted dog wardens in the seizure of several animals in a search at the property on August 18.

Seven dogs were seized.

“During the search, officers discovered a substantial amount of cannabis plants, some measuring as tall as 5ft 7in in height,” she added.

One man was arrested on suspicion of cultivation, while more plants were seized in an unrelated raid on the same day.

“They discovered a large quantity of cannabis plants in the yard of a Devonshire residence, growing at heights of up to 5ft 9in tall,” the spokeswoman said.

“The plants have been seized under the Misuse of Drugs Act.”

Anyone with information related to either investigation was urged to contact the police support unit on 247-1784.

Anyone with information about any other crimes in their neighbourhood was urged to call 295-0011, the non-emergency contact centre on 211 or the confidential Crime Stoppers line on 800-8477.
