Seventy-four persons were arrested yesterday during a joint operation by the army and the police in the villages of Agricola on the East Bank and Bareroot on the East Coast as the security services scale up their response to rampant crime.

However, Stabroek News has not been able to ascertain why the arrests were made as neither the police nor the army was available for comment.

Stabroek News understands that the ranks launched the operations early yesterday morning and arrested 49 men from Bareroot, and 18 males and seven females from Agricola. On Wednesday morning, 18 persons were arrested in Buxton.

It is not clear where the persons are being held or whether any of them were released last evening. Nothing illegal was found according to reports.

The ranks set off from the camp that has been set up at the back of Buxton by the army and the police and according to Lt Colonel Fraser the operation is a continuation of Operation Centipede.
