A 64-year-old man is currently in police custody on allegations of larceny.

The suspect, said to be from Parsley Street, Laventille, was arrested around 10 am on Tuesday by PC John from the City Police Multi-Operation task force.

John received information which led him to Duke Street, Port of Spain, where he held the elderly man.

The 64-year-old, police said, was wanted in a series of larcenies reported in the Port of Spain and North Eastern Division.

However, his arrest stemmed from CCTV footage recorded on August 4 at a bookstore in San Juan which showed the 64-year-old stealing a phone which was left on a table.

The suspect has since been handed over to officers in the San Juan Police Station who are continuing inquiries.
