Suspects arrested in Bimini for possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunitions
It was on Monday 30th July, 2012 at 5:00pm when a team of officers from the Royal Bahamas Defense Force along with an officer from the Fisheries Department handed over three American adult males of Florida to the police in Bimini.
The suspects were arrested after their vessel, a 28ft Mako Go-Fast fishing vessel with a T-Top and two black and white Mercury 300HP engines was boarded for a routine check in Bahamian waters just off North Bimini. During the inspection the suspects were found to be in breach of the Fisheries Act and they were not cleared by the Bahamas Customs Department.
A further search of the vessel led to the discovery of a pistol and a quantity of ammunitions.
Police in Bimini are continuing their investigations into this matter and the three men are expected to be transported to New Providence to be arraigned in the Firearm’s Court on relevant charges.
We commend the vigilant officers of the Royal Bahamas Defense Force and Fisheries Department as they continue to protect our borders.Suspect arraigned on murder charge in Magistrate's Court
