Man held with marijuana hidden in crotch

A man who attempted to hide a bag of marijuana in his crotch was arrested on Tuesday.

The suspect was one of two men held in Sangre Grande by officers of the Special Operations Unit.

The officers, led by Sgt Harper and Cpl Ramnarine, received intelligence which led them to “known drug blocks” in the Sangre Grande area.

Along Coronation Road, the officers had cause to stop and search one man who had an “unnatural bulge” in his pants.

He was found to be carrying 22 grammes of marijuana.

Near Brierley Street, the officers also had cause to stop and search a man.

He was found to be carrying a quantity of cocaine.

The two were expected to be questioned and brought before a Sangre Grande Magistrate. PC Cielto, PC Singh, PC Lezama, and PC Samuel also assisted during the operation.
