Police exercises in the North Eastern Division over the past four days have resulted in the seizure of several firearms and the arrests of five persons.
The exercises were conducted under the supervision of Snr Sup Sagramsingh with assistance from a team of officers including ASP Prag, ASP Sooker, Inspector Maraj, Inspector Beard, Sgt Guelmo, Cpl Martin, Cpl DeJean, PC Constantine, and WPC Scott, among several others.
During the course of the exercises, which took place in the San Juan, Santa Cruz, and Morvant districts, the officers allegedly seized one Glock 19 pistol with three rounds of 9mm ammunition; two Berretta 9mm pistols with 10 rounds 9mm ammunition; and a Smith and Wesson 9mm firearm loaded with eight rounds of ammunition.
As a result of these finds, five persons were arrested and taken into custody.
They were all expected to be questioned and brought before a Port of Spain Magistrate sometime this week.
More on this as it becomes available.
