Two cops held with illegal guns, drugs in Cedros

Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Two police officers from a special unit of the T&T Police Service (TTPS) were among three held last evening for possession of three illegal firearms and four crocus bags of compressed marijuana. Up to late last night, the T&T Guardian was told that the officers and a civilian were assisting police in their investigations.

Details were still sketchy up to press time, but according to police sources the trio was held in Cedros in an unmarked vehicle assigned to the TTPS. Officers had earlier received a tip-off and later intercepted the vehicle. It was during the search the vehicle that the guns and drugs were found.

It is believed the items were brought in from nearby Venezuela. The value and weight of the marijuana is yet to be determined. Investigations are continuing.
