Tobagonians arrested for stolen car parts
Four men from Tobago who attempted to smuggle stolen car parts and accessories into Trinidad were arrested on Saturday afternoon. They were arrested around 3 pm as they disembarked from the ferry service. According to reports, detectives of the Port-of-Spain CID received information that the group was arriving in Port-of-Spain with the goods which they intended to sell to unscrupulous car part dealers.
The officers led by ASP Ajith Persad went to the Port-of-Spain Ferry Terminal on Wrightson Road, Port-of-Spain, where they arrested the men who are all said to be in their 20s. The lawmen seized the vehicle they were travelling in and while searching it they found the stolen items which included speakers, music systems and other electronic accessories.
The suspects were later handed over to investigators of the Tobago Division, who said they (the suspects) were being sought for larceny offences for some time. Meanwhile, an illegal immigrant from Spain was arrested by police during a breathalyser exercise in Woodbrook on Saturday night.
Police said during the exercise which began at 6 pm, the woman was stopped after they noticed her driving erratically. She was asked to take a breathalyser test which she failed. While making further checks the officers realised the woman had overstayed the time alloted to her by Immigration officers at the Piarco International Airport. She is expected to appear before a Port-of-Spain magistrate later today.
The officers also impounded three stolen vehicles in the exercise. More than 60 fixed penalty traffic tickets were also issued to delinquent drivers. The exercise was co-ordinated by Senior Supt Wayne Boyd and included Insps Sahadeo Singh, Edwards and Montrichard.
