St. Maarten – On Saturday March 14th at approximately 04.40 p.m. a police patrol was sent to a home on Betty’s Estate road to intervene in a dispute. On the scene the officers knocked on the door of the home which was immediately opened by a female.
“At the same time the investigating officers smelled the strong scent of marihuana coming from the inside of the house. As the officers continued their investigation they noticed that the female became quite nervous and started behaving suspiciously. The officers then spoke to the male occupant of the house who also behaved quite suspicious.
Suspecting that illegal drugs were in the house a search was done in the house. During this search a large amount of ammunition, a Taser, weighing scales, several plastic bags containing a large amount of marihuana and other drugs paraphernalia were found and confiscated. The 29-year-old male victim was arrested on the spot and taken to the Philipsburg Police Station where he remains in custody for further investigation.”
