Saturday, August 12, 2017

Two men who police described as relatives of a “reputed drug dealer” were arrested on Thursday by officers of the North Eastern Division during their ongoing efforts to arrest a Las Cuevas gang leader.

Recently two other male relatives of the man were held with marijuana and were charged. On Thursday the men, 30 and 29, both nephews of the targeted drug dealer, were held during an exercise led by Sgt Sterlin Taylor in the Las Cuevas and Maracas Bay areas which took place between 3 pm to 7 pm. The exercise also included Cpl Shiraz Ali and Constables Lindon Holder, James Stafford, Ali and Oliver.

The 30-year-old was held with a 9mm pistol and 6 rounds of ammunition and the 29-year-old was held with less than half a kilogram of marijuana with an estimated street value of $13,000. Both men are expected to appear before a Port-of-Spain Magistrate on Monday.
