A former Trinidad and Tobago Fire Service netballer is expected to appear before a Port of Spain Magistrate on Thursday morning after she was allegedly held with marijuana.
The 34-year-old woman, who is a mother of one, was held around 5:20 am on Thursday during a police exercise by officers of the Western Division Task Force.
A team of officers, led by Sgt Arneaud, and including Cpl Dominique, PC Mc Clean, PC Gilkes, PC Peters, & PC St John, received key information which led them to an apartment along Waterhole Road, Cocorite.
There, the officers executed a search warrant and allegedly found and seized 180 grammes of compressed marijuana.
The drug, which was kept in one packet, was reportedly found hidden inside a pillowcase in her bedroom.
As a result, the woman was detained and charged.
