Basseterre, St. Kitts, April 29, 2016 (RSCNPF): A combined search operation by members of the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force and the St. Kitts and Nevis Defence Force in which two search warrants were executed on Thursday (April 28) have resulted in the discovery of two cache of stolen items and the arrest of two persons.
The warrants were executed on a property in Bath Village and one in the Hamilton area.
