Recovered Firearm Bermuda Nov 2020A “firearm and several rounds of ammunition were recovered” and two suspects were “arrested in connection with the recovery of these items,” the police have confirmed.

A police spokesperson said, “The Bermuda Police Service is able to report that a firearm and several rounds of ammunition were recovered during an operation this past weekend.

“The operation involved several units within the BPS, with warrants executed at multiple locations in the central parishes, in relation to a number of ongoing investigations

“It was during the execution of a warrant at a property on Elliot Street, Pembroke, that the firearm and ammunition were recovered.

“The firearm is to be forensically examined to determine whether it may have been used in any gun related crimes locally.

“Two suspects, a 28-year-old male and a 26-year-old male were subsequently arrested in connection with the recovery of these items. However, they have both been granted police bail, pending further enquiries.

“A motorcycle and other items belonging to the suspects were also seized.”

Detective Superintendent Nicholas Pedro praised the officers from the Intelligence, Tactical, Gang, and Serious Crime units for the “professional manner in which they carried out their duties during this initiative which was successful in getting a firearm and ammunition off the streets and reducing the threat posed to the safety and wellbeing of the island’s residents, from those seemingly bent on engaging in criminal activity.”

Detective Superintendent Pedro said: “The hard work and dedication of these officers cannot go unrecognised, but I would especially like to thank you, the members of the public for the community information that made this operation the success that it was.

“As we have said many times before, when the public and police work together it only serves to strengthen our community against the efforts of those who would seek to bring harm against it. Let’s continue to work together to make Bermuda safer.”
