The Liberia National Police have intensified its 100-day special operation code named: "Operation Safe Haven" across Monrovia as several suspected criminals have been arrested in connection with various crimes.
One hundred and four criminal suspects, mainly drug dealers and users, were arrested at different locations in central Monrovia and Bushrod Island during an early Tuesday morning raid. Among the 104 suspects, 15 are females and 89 males.
Following the random arrests, the police conducted a rigorous screening exercise to identify the actual criminals.
An LNP release signed by Police Spokesman Sam Collins, said out of the 104 drug suspects, 50 were released after thorough screening while 54 are currently in Police custody undergoing preliminary investigation.
The release quotes Mr. Collins as saying that LNP will not relent to arrest anyone who violates the law. He said the police will remain on the alert to prevent would-be criminals from creating havoc during and after the festive seasons.
Meanwhile, the Liberia National Police are calling on the public to report any strange movement and criminal hideouts in their respective communities.
