WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15: Two people have been arrested in a large drugs sting orchestrated by police and Customs officers, the Bermuda Sun can reveal.

And police signalled more people could be arrested as the major inquiry continues.

Teams from both agencies are understood to have swooped on a house in St David’s after a load of cement from the US was delivered with a large shipment of drugs concealed inside it.

It is understood that officers allowed the delivery after tracking the consignment from its US port of origin to Bermuda.

It is thought that the consignment was one of a series of regular deliveries to the same company, believed to be a firm connected to the home construction industry.

Last night, police were staying tight-lipped on the seizure, which happened two weeks ago.

But a spokesman confirmed: “HM Customs and Bermuda police seized a large shipment of illegal drugs, imported into Bermuda via the USA.

“Investigations to date have resulted in two persons being arrested, who were later released on bail pending further investigations.”

He added: “Due to the complexity of the investigation and the potential for more suspects to be arrested or interviewed in future, no additional information will be released at this time.”

The shipment is believed to have come through a local shipping firm. We reached out to them yesterday but they did not return calls from the Bermuda Sun.
