Police Caught Another Alleged Big Fish Criminal

Police Commissioner Trevor Botting

Police Commissioner Trevor Botting, on Wednesday, updated the country on on-going operation on Providenciales as law enforcers work to rid the country of the lawless.

Commissioner Botting said in its operation on Wednesday, the police might have apprehended a big fish connected to the spate of killings across Providenciales.

The following is the statement from Commissioner Botting:

Good afternoon, Turks and Caicos. It’s Wednesday 16th November 2022 and I am speaking to you from Police Headquarters.

Police operations continue across the Turks and Caicos Islands, tackling crime and criminality through visible policing and covert operations. Please be reassured that the men and women of the Force, together with law enforcement partners from the TCI and the region are working hard to keep you safe.

During the early hours of this morning (Wednesday 16th November) , a large overt policing operation was undertaken in the Dock Yard and the Bight areas of Providenciales.

This operation comprised of 45 officers from the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force, the Royal Bahamas Police Force, TCI immigration enforcement, supported by United States Law Enforcement partners with air support.

As a result of this operation, six persons were arrested from crime and immigration matters. One of the arrests is regarded as particularly significant in relation to the recent surge in shootings.

Following this policing operation, a significant number of roads checks were carried out across Providenciales with officers from the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force, colleagues from Bahamas, Immigration enforcement and road safety officials.

Again, we are grateful to our US colleagues for the support in the skies above the TCI.
