Monday, May 26, 2014

Police arrested a couple for having an illegal gun, arrested seven drunk drivers and are searching for four gunmen who robbed six people in two separate incidents in south Trinidad on Friday.  The first incident took place around 5 pm. A farmer was in his white Bluebird car at Duncan Village, San Fernando, when he was accosted by two men with guns. They ordered him into the backseat and drove the car to Pointe-a-Pierre near Flower Pot beach.


They then beat and robbed the man of his wallet containing $500 and other items. Around 6.15 pm, five people were at the same beach when two men robbed them at gun point, escaping with $30,000 in jewelery, $3,000 in cash and cellphones. In an exercise on Friday night, Marabella Police including Cpl Bachan stopped a gold-coloured Mazda 323 at Theresa Street, Marabella.


Upon searching the car, driven by a 26-year-old woman of Agnes Street, Marabella, the police found a firearm and magazine under her seat. The woman and passenger, a 28-year-old man of the same address, were arrested. Seven other people were arrested for driving under the influence, in a road traffic exercise at Cross Crossing by the San Fernando Traffic Police, including Cpl Ramdass and other officers.
