At least two masked gunmen allegedly searching for marijuana farms attacked farmers in two separate incidents in Choiseul on Wedneday morning, Nov. 22, according to sources.
During the interrogation, several of the farmers were injured when the bandits beat them with machetes after tying them up.
One farmer in particular sustained serious head injuries.
The bandits left without helpful information as it is alleged that the farmers did not know what they were talking about.
After the farmers freed themselves they reported the matter to the police and the injured were taken to hospital by private means.
“Apparently the criminals wanted to rob a farm working on a tip. Luckily no lives were lost,” a police source said.
