More patrols for Couva North
Couva North MP Ramona Ramdial has assured residents there will be more police patrols in the area. She spoke with the Sunday Guardian yesterday about the botched kidnapping of four-year-old Suri Sookdeo of Waterloo Road, Carapichaima on Friday. The child was rescued by villagers after a man snatched her while she was being dropped off at a pre-school at Bhagwandeen Street by a female relative. The man was later arrested by the police.
Ramdial said she has spoken with Police Commissioner Dwyane Gibbs who has assured there would be increased patrols in the area. Ramdial said she was giving the 21 century police initiative a chance to work and was appealing to community members to be vigilant and keep an eye out for crime. Ramdial said the Couva/Tabaquite/Talparo Regional Corporation has acquired brush cutters that would be used to clear overgrown grounds.
Orlando Nagessar, the Chaguanas mayor and chairman of the Couva North UNC Constituency executive, blamed the Estate Management Business Development Company Ltd for not maintaining the abandoned sugar estates in T&T. Nagessar said the abandoned estates at Joyce Roads, Peters Field, Roopsingh Road and Factory Road have now become dumping grounds, hide-outs for criminals and a place where people scrap stolen cars.
