Two teenagers arrested following police operation at Rum Point

Two teenagers are behind bars in relation to weapons and drug offences after police swooped
in Rum Point.

The operation, which was led by officers from the Eastern Districts, saw police out in numbers in the air, land, and of course, on the sea in the vicinity of Rum Point.

Air Operations, Marine and K-9 Units, worked alongside local officers, Special Constables and the Drugs Task Force to reassure the hundreds of locals and visitors who had converged on the area for the usual Sunday afternoon celebrations.

Marine vessels Niven D and Tornado patrolled the sea and officers on Marine Unit wave runners  interacted with the boaters in the area to root out any criminal behavior.

Chief Inspector Martin Bodden Jr, Commander of the Eastern Districts, said: “This was all about providing a visible police presence to make sure that everyone who was taking part in the customary gathering at Rum Point was safe and free from criminality.

Police were responding to a number of reports they received that included a man getting slashed with a knife, disorder and drug offences.
