Death threats for PNM councillor

Morvant police are investigating death threats made against the life of People’s National Movement councillor Franz “De Lamo” Lambkin.

The death threats came just over one month after he was robbed of a quantity of cash and other valuables, including important documents containing his personal information.

In this latest case, officers received information that on Wednesday at about 2.30 pm, two men were seen lurking around his home in Morvant. The men were also overheard saying: “His car not there…we have to get him to spray him down with bullets.”

On May 3 at about 8.20 am, Lambkin was driving his vehicle along the Lady Young Road in Morvant when, close to the Hilton Trinidad, he stopped to pick up a man he had seen before on the compound of the San Juan/Laventille Regional Corporation. After a few minutes, the man asked to be dropped off. But when Lambkin stopped his vehicle the man grabbed a pouch containing money and documents, including bank debit and credit cards.

Speaking with the T&T Guardian yesterday, Lambkin said he strongly believes that both incidents are connected. He added that during the May 3 incident he had conversed with the man about employment opportunities which would have become available soon at the regional corporation.

Lambkin said he lodged official reports on both incidents and given this latest one, he has been assured that police patrols will be heightened in and around his community, especially around his home.

Investigations are continuing.
