Suspected Drug Yard Busted
Two persons were detained by the police as an investigation continues following an early evening raid for drugs in Alexander Street yesterday.
Capitol news understands that a quantity of suspected illicit drugs was found during the raid. The suspected illicit substance was not found in the possession of anyone, but the police believe that the two persons detained can help them with information.
Capitol news understands that a party of heavily armed police men lead by two senior police officers descended on the yard and began to search for drugs and other illegal items.
The police also took away a television set, a quantity of beverages and other items from a shop which is located at the front of the building. One of the persons arrested told reporters that the police came into his shop and began assaulting him.
Controversy surrounds the piece of land where the raid was conducted. A few years back the then owner demolished a section of the building.
