Cops arrest two for gun, ammo in car
Police have arrested two South Oropouche men, aged 20 and 25, after a gun and ammunition were found in the vehicle in which they were travelling. The men were held in Gasparillo during a weekend police exercise in the Southern Division. During a stop and search exercise, police discovered a .38 revolver and four live rounds of ammunition in a black SUV vehicle in which one of the suspects was the driver and the other an occupant.
Police said the men will go on several identification parades today, as there have been several reports of robberies by men fitting their description. The exercise, led by Senior Superintendent Cecil Santana and Superintendent Maynard, began on Friday afternoon and ended shortly before noon on Sunday. During the exercises in San Fernando, La Romaine, Marabella, Gasparillo, Claxton Bay Moruga and Princes Town, 164 traffic tickets were issued and 91 were arrested for narcotics, robberies, housebreaking and other crimes.
Among those arrested were 25 drivers for drunk driving, including a schoolteacher, an engineer and an employee in the office of Member of Parliament Ramona Ramdial. They are expected to appear before a San Fernando Magistrate, this morning to answer the charges. Police also executed warrants for various offences and total of 51 people were arrested.
