Suspect released after 'explosive device' found at Parkade

Police have released a man who was detained following inquiries into the detonation of an ‘explosive device’ at the Government Campus Plaza Parkade last week.

However, police said that they retain the right to arrest the suspect once again should any further evidence be brought.

Inquiries into the incident, which took place on the morning of November 26 in the capital city, are still ongoing.

The suspect was detained that day after officers observed him acting in a suspicious manner.

He was found to be in possession of electronic items which matched some of the parts found in the device which is suspected to have been detonated.

The incident took place on the 12th floor of the Parkade along Richmond Street, downtown Port-of-Spain.

At that time, the Police Service confirmed that an electronic device was found on the western side of the building following a sweep of the facility.

Personnel from the Explosive Detection and Disposal Unit (EDDU) attached to Special Branch, were among the various units which visited the scene.

There have been no reported injuries nor damage to property or vehicles.

More on this as it becomes available.
