Security guard held with drugs near Woodbrook school

A 54-year-old security guard was due to appear before a Port of Spain Magistrate on Friday after he was held with a quantity of marijuana.

Due to the location of the find which was within 500 meters of a school, the suspect was charged with the offence of possession of marijuana for the purposes of trafficking.

The suspect was held at his home off Cipriani Boulevard around 1.00 pm Thursday during a police operation by officers of the Port of Spain Division led by Sup Rampath and ASP Sooker, with assistance from Inspector Deonarine and Sgt Bharath.

The officer, police said, was held with just under 500 grammes of the illegal drug.

PC Nanan is the complainant (charging officer) in this matter.

More on this as it becomes available.
