Drugs found in South barbershop

Eight men were due to appear before a Rio Claro Magistrate on Monday after drugs were found in a barbershop.

The drugs were found in a barbershop along the Naparima/Mayaro Road, during police exercises on Friday.

The exercises were supervised by Insp Jankee and Sgt Samaroo, Sgt Mohammed and Sgt Mahabir, among several others.

The officers acting on information received made their way to the business place where the drugs were found in the presence of the eight persons.

As a result, they were all detained and taken into custody.

Police also arrested 21 other persons during this exercise for a variety of offences including drug possession, driving under the influence, and on outstanding warrants.

More on this as it becomes available.
