NASSAU, Bahamas -- Two 22-year-old men in police custody in The Bahamas are connected to at least 23 murders, Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade announced on Wednesday.

Greenslade said the men will be charged with at least five of those murders at the end of the week.

Police arrested one of the suspects on Sunday morning for questioning, Greenslade said.

He said that arrest led to the capture of a second man that afternoon.

The 23 murders were committed over the last two years, according to Greenslade.

“I am further pleased to advise that we are currently following significant leads in these 23 homicides and we are optimistic that going forward that this major breakthrough will result in an unprecedented number of homicides being cleared up,” said Greenslade, although he declined to provide more information because of the sensitive nature of the investigations.

He promised to speak more in depth on the matter at a later date.
