The Trinidad and Tobago Prison Service is clearing up misinformation about a photograph of a man holding a gun in a cell that has been circulating.

In a release, the Prison Service said the firearm is not real.

"It should be noted that the object being held in the photographs is one of the props which was used during a performance at the recently concluded Carnival Programme. Additionally, the photographs were taken prior to the programme and have since then been removed from the inmate’s possession," the TTPS said.

The TTPS said, however, the individual in the photographs has been identified and the necessary disciplinary steps are being taken for his actions, as searches of the Maximum Security Prison are being conducted.
