Man held for drugs in Strike Back exercise

A road traffic exercise in Arouca led to the arrest of one man for narcotics possession, while 13 others were ticketed.

The exercise, led by ASP Gyan and Insp Greene, with assistance from Sgt Guelmo, WPC Coggins, and others, took place between 3 pm and 6 pm on Wednesday near the Five Rivers Junction.

The 13 persons were ticketed for various offences including driving without a permit, driving without insurance, driving defective vehicles, and using their cellular phones while operating a vehicle.

Similar exercises are expected to take place in the district over the coming weekend as police continue the “strike-back” operations throughout the country.
