Bimini, Bahamas — The island of Bimini was ‘LOCK-DOWN’ following fears of an island robber running wild. Residents of the tiny island had experienced break–ins, which never could be solved. However, tonight the islanders will sleep sound tonight as police on that island believes they have their man. And you would be shock to know who they have.
A police officer stationed on the island was caught ‘RED HANDED’ with stolen goods! Here’s another SHOCKING STORY YOU WILL ONLY FIND ON BP.
Bahamas Press is reporting police reservist officer R656, Pedro Curtis, is now behind bars tonight and is station in the quarter guard after being caught in the home of a fellow senior police inspector. Information gathered by BP’s ‘deep–throat’ in the Royal Bahamas Police Force confirmed Curtis was caught on Friday 29th Jan., ‘THIEFIN’ items out of the home of his senior officer on Bimini.
Our deep–throat said, “For the past few months now the island of Bimini was under a wave of robberies. Apparently, none of the incidents were being solved, but they followed a trend. And today we are happy we will put all these matters to rest.”
Constable Curtis we are told will be arraigned before the magistrate for these crimes.
BP was told, “The string of robberies began during the same week Curtis landed to take up his post on the island. Scores of resident’s homes had been vandalized and items were removed including items from the home of a senior customs officer a police report detailed.”
We were also informed items belonging to the Water & Sewerage Corporation were also in the long list of items in Curtis’ possession. It is alleged reservist officer did not spare several other government buildings on the island as they were also vandalized recently.
Curtis was transferred to Bimini from Cat Cay, which had experienced a string of robberies. Those robberies were never solved our deep–throat close to the investigation said.
The accused could face up to 14 years for each count of housebreaking if found guilty. His arraignment will also present a BIG TEST for the new administration of the RBPF , which told members of the public the fight against crime will take on a “no–nonsense” approach by members of the force. However, BP wonders what they will do following this arrest of a second officer on Bimini, when nothing has come out on against the first.
Readers would remember late December just days before Christmas, Bahamas Press reported the arrest of Inspector Kevin Mortimer [INSET] on that island. DEU officers from Nassau flew to Bimini and made the arrest of Mortimer, who was the Officer-in-Charge of the Bimini District, which includes Cat Cay and Ocean Cay. He was been flown to the capital and to this day has not since returned on the isle. We wonder why, ….Hmmmmmm!
Curtis is from Andros and attended school there. He joined the police reserve branch in 2003. He has served in Andros, Cat Cay and Nassau.
