<<< The creatures of the wildlife in the dense Andros bushes guard their territory as two small boys joined them. The boys said they heard the dogs and the people calling them but they never came out, hmmmmm.
Andros, Bahamas — A report published in the Canadian Foundation for Drug Policy [CFDP] 2008, gave us the story that link us to another story now playing out in the Bahamian news. Two brothers, Deangelo Clarke, 9 and Marcel Clarke, 5, were miraculously found whilst walking on a dusty pothole road that leads to Kemps Bay.
Suffering from signs of severe malnutrition, July 14th (today) would’ve made five weeks since the boys first disappeared. Family members say the boys went missing on an evening during a crab catching adventure. The story sounds innocent, but who believes that story? Certainly not Bahamas Press, and definitely not the police and here’s why.
In 2007 like many years before the RBPF vowed a major clampdown on the illicit drug trade, And the Island of Andros was no exception. In that CFDP report, police confirmed “the cultivation of marijuana on various Family Islands continues to be a significant recurring trend in The Bahamas.” And added by reporting since 2006, some five marijuana fields were discovered in Andros.
Now, what does this have to do with the missing boys? Well, here’s what our deep throat on the RBPF tell us, “Drugs are being planted all across Andros these days and the problem is now reaching dangerous levels. It has reached a level where persons cultivating marijuana on Andros would hold at ransom family members of individuals until a payment is secured on plants harvested.”
Bahamas Press cannot conclude that this is indeed the case with the boys, but certainly, it cannot be ruled out, and here’s why.
Our deep throat tells us back in 2006, two senior officers of the RBPF went on a hunting retreat nearby the Smith’s Hill community, the same place where the boys went missing. The ASP and ACP were hunting wild boars when suddenly they became the hunted by a group of Jamaican men, who were hiding deep in the bushes.
The officers were ducking for cover as they were fired upon. Heavy artillery was being fired in their direction. It was as if they were in a war-zone, therefore, the officers radioed for backup. Throughout most of the day the gun battle continued in the tiny community until the Strike Force arrived with backup from a helicopter patrol the following day. By daybreak, we were told, the gun battle had died and the police moved in to assess the situation.
Now in this CFDP report, police informed the press by confirming this much had happened, “Upon checking the area police discovered a makeshift structure with personal items, food and cooking utensils.
“Police said officers inspected a clearing next to the tent and discovered over 2,000 marijuana plants.”
Here is what our deep throat added to that report, “When officers moved in, they saw a wooden cabin and behind it was a drug field. Persons would remember the press reported that a huge marijuana field was discovered and two Jamaican nationals were arrested.
“The media could cloud the story [of the missing boys] all they want and say those boys just reappeared, but we know better. Someone owed someone money, and they took the boys as ransom. There is no way they could have survived in the wild that long. If the wild boars didn’t attack them, the snakes in Andros, as big as you and me, would have attacked them. And if they survived that, the sand fly nests would have taken them out by now,” our deep throat concluded.
Whatever the case, we now know Chickcharneys are not in Andros, but mini-military drug producing sleeper cells, which lay buried deep inside the bushes of that island.
