Police arrest three suspects in robbery of Chinese groceries

Three men linked to a string of robberies targeting groceries operated by Chinese nationals in the Tunapuna district were held by police during an anti-crime exercise in the Central and Northern Divisions earlier this week.

The exercise was conducted between 3 pm on Monday and 6 am on Tuesday.

A 26-year-old Tunaupna man and two Caroni men, ages 28 and 37, were arrested after officers conducted searches of their homes and discovered a vault and a DVR for a camera system at the home of one of the men from Caroni.

A Llama revolver and four rounds of .38 ammunition were also found hidden in a black plastic bag under a sheet of galvanise in a bushy area behind the house of one of the suspects. 

The exercise was spearheaded by Acting ACP McDonald Jacob and was coordinated by Acting Senior Superintendent Michael Daniel and included Inspector Roger Joseph.

The exercise involved officers from the Northern Division Special Investigations Unit, Tunapuna Criminal Investigations Department and Northern Division Task Force Areas East, West and Central.
