Nine persons were arrested and a firearm and quantities of ammunition and marijuana seized by officers, during a series of anti-crime exercises conducted across the Southern, Eastern and North-Central Divisions on Monday and Tuesday.

In the North-Central Division, Task Force officers conducted an Operation Grand Slam exercise in the D’Abadie district between 7 pm and 11 pm, on Tuesday.

Officers were on mobile patrol when they responded to a report of Robbery in Progress at a D’Abadie supermarket.

On arrival the officers observed a silver Nissan Sylphy motor vehicle fleeing the scene.

The vehicle with five male occupants was intercepted a short distance away.

A search of the vehicle resulted in one Glock 19 pistol loaded with 16 rounds of ammunition being discovered.
