Police in Antigua have taken into custody two of their former colleagues as they continue to investigate the double murder of Dominicans Alix Riviere and Alwin Robin.
Media reports from that island say the two, a recently retired officer and one who left the force just after recruitment years ago, are assisting in the probe since they were allegedly left in charge of the property where the two dead men were found.
Reports indicate that one of the men turned himself in when he heard he was being sought while the other was picked up and charged with another offense.
It is reported that the offense is not related to the double murders.
The bodies of Riviere and Robin were found on October 4 in an area call Cedar Valley. Both men were shot execution style.
Riviere was found with his hands bound and he was severely beaten while Robin was found nearby.
Law enforcement said they found 35 kilos of packaged cocaine in the house which is reportedly worth some $1.4-million.
Antigua media reported that the owner of the house was overseas at the time the incident occurred.
