Police Officer Arrested for Firearm, Ammunition and Drug Possession

In the early hours of Monday, April 22, 2024, the Bermuda Police Service began a targeted operation, which resulted in the arrest of a Police Sergeant, seven associates, the recovery of a firearm with ammunition, and a very significant quantity of drugs. The arrests were made in connection with an ongoing investigation that includes corruption.


The officer has been charged with Conspiracy to import and supply controlled drugs, Conspiracy to import and supply firearms and ammunition, a Computer misuse offence, and Attempting to pervert the course of justice.


Corruption undermines the very foundation of our society and betrays the trust placed in us by the community. We will act resolutely and decisively to root out those members of the service who violate that trust. Let this be a clear message to all; such conduct will find no shelter in the Bermuda Police. If found guilty, the officer will face the full force of the law.”


The public can be confident that we are committed to transparency and accountability at all levels. We are taking proactive steps to prevent similar incidents in the future, including the creation of an Anti-corruption unit and the development of a strategic plan to mitigate the risk of corruption.

Every action we take is with the intent of strengthening the bond of trust between the community and the police.”


The arrested officer has been suspended, with pay, in accordance with legislation.

Understandably, this news will be as unsettling to the community, as it is for the BPS family. We recognize the impact this incident has on our officers, particularly those who worked closely with the accused. Support is available to ensure their well-being during this challenging time.


I want to assure the public that the vast majority of our officers serve honorably and with integrity. This incident does not reflect the values and principles of the Bermuda Police Service. We remain committed to providing the highest level of service to our community.


The Bermuda Police Service encourages anyone with information related to this case or any other suspected corrupt activities to contact the BPS confidentially via Crimestoppers at 800-8477 or the anonymous reporting portal at [https://portal.police.bm].


Rest assured the Bermuda Police Service willcontinue to serve our community with integrity, professionalism, and accountability. We are resolute in our mission to make Bermuda safer for all.”
