GREAT BAY – The Public Prosecutor announced Thursday they confiscated 11 (fire) arms, 7 kilos of what they presume is cocaine and $24, 000 in the 10 house searches conducted by the Large Scale Investigation Team TGO-Vesuvius on Wednesday. They also announced that the team had already arrested K.D – a resident of the Dutch side who was carrying a firearm when he was arrested – on November 8 near the French border. That brings the total number of suspects arrested to nine. The other eight people arrested and detained are O.J. (35), C.R. (29), E.L. (28), C.F. (36), E.M. (34), D.T. (25), A.D. (30) and K.M. (27).
Three of the eight suspects arrested for murder and attempted murder were taken before the Judge of Instruction Thursday and he agreed with the prosecutor’s request to remand them for eight days. The other five suspects will be led before the Judge today.
The team, which has 30 detectives and was assisted on Wednesday by 150 investigating officers, has also appealed for anyone who has information on the murders they are investigating to call them at 1-721-580-3952.
