Three men are expected to appear before a Port of Spain Magistrate this morning after they were held with a quantity of stolen alcohol and marijuana.

The three men, aged 60, 40, and 28, were arrested by the Central Market in Port of Spain, around 5 am on Sunday.

According to reports, a team of officers from the Port of Spain Division, Inter-Agency Task Force, and City Police, led by Superintendent Charles, with assistance from Inspector McGuirk, Cpl John, and Cpl McShine, among several others, were conducting routine patrols in the area, when they observed three men by the market packing away several cases.

The men, on seeing the police vehicle, began to act in a suspicious manner, which piqued the interest of the officers.
