The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) has given instructions to charge the four persons who were arrested in the largest drug bust in Trinidad and Tobago in recent times.

The group was arrested for cocaine and marijuana possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Krystiana Sankar, the former step-daughter of Communications Minister Stuart Young, was charged for possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking, possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a firearm and ammunition.

Aruba Eligon, Jervon Cole and Yannis Pebbles Augustine have all been jointly charged with possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking and possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.

They are set to appear before the Port of Spain Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

The charges arose from an intelligence-led operation executed by Police Commissioner Gary Griffith and the Special Operations Response Team (SORT) on December 4 at an apartment in Regents Gardens, Westmoorings.
