Police seize US$4,000, man aiding with enquiries

Police said they have seized US$4,000 and a man who was held with the money is aiding with enquiries. 

Police said the suspect was held around midday in Chaguanas during a routine police operation supervised by Snr Sup Simon and Sup Mystar.

The officers had cause to intercept a vehicle which was driven by a man known to them.

The car and the driver were searched and the officers found the cash.

The driver was unable to give a 'proper account' for the money, and as a result, it was seized.

Police said he is expected to be questioned and added that the driver was 'associated with several criminal elements'.

More on this as it becomes available.
