Peddler held with syringes, charas

A man was arrested for allegedly possessing charas and large number of syringes in the Calangute beach belt of Goa, a senior police official said today.

The accused, Tyrone Nazareth, was arrested after 12 gms of charas and 12 boxes of 100 syringes were seized from his possession last evening at Calangute. 

The North District police raided four premises yesterday and began combing operations in the beach belt of Calangute-Baga-Candolim in a bid to crack down on drug peddlers, after local legislators submitted names of the suspected drug lords operating in the area. 

Calangute MLA Michael Lobo had last week accused police of protecting the drug trade in the coastal belt, which according to him, had reached alarming proportions. 

He had also submitted a list of suspected drug peddlers to the state Director General of Police. 

Superintendent of Police (North) Vishram Borkar said today that the searches and raids will continue as and when police keeps on getting information. 

He said police was also working on the leads provided by Lobo to crack down on the drug trade.

Well done to Michael Lobo for taking the initiative of revealing the names of "alleged" Drug Pushers in Calangute.

This is a good start in clearing out this menace.

I wonder what ex-MLA Agnelo Fernandes was up to?. Seems like he suffers from some form of blindness.

A few shacks in Colva beach , some owned by friends of the Nuvem MLA aka supremo ,that are known to be both, drug & prostitution joints.

Perhaps Mickky Pacheco will be forthcoming with his revlations. But I for one will not be Banking on that.

As far as everyone in Goa knows, Mickky Pacheco is no "upright" citizen" and is a well known collaborator of nefarious activities.
