Police seized seven packages containing “suspected controlled drugs” after they were discovered floating in the surf just off Southlands Beach, and there have now been a total of ten packages located by the police.

The seven packages floating off Southlands Beach follow after the discovery of three packages found off the South Shore a few days prior.

A police spokesperson said, “The Bermuda Police Service can confirm that 7 packages containing suspected controlled drugs were seized by police after the items were discovered by a member of the public, floating in the surf just off Southlands Beach at around 11:30 a.m. on Friday 16th October.

“Police, along with their colleagues from the Coast Guard, carried out an exhaustive search of the area, but no other packages were found.

“The packages are to be forensically examined and the content to be examined to determine whether they contain controlled drugs.

“Ten such packages have now so far been reported to the police by members of the public, leading to the recovery and seizure of these items.

“We wish to thank those individuals who have brought these finds to the attention of the police and urge anyone who encounters suspicious packages on beaches or in the nearby waters, to please call 211 or, the main police number, 295-0011.”
