From initial reports, the suspect was held after a warrant related to inquiries on shooting offenses was executed on him.

This is the third alleged gang-leader held over a two day period, with a “well-known” individual being arrested on Wednesday during the “push-back” operations launched by the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service.

Another alleged gang-leader was held in Diego Martin, and in total 27 persons were arrested that day.

They are all to be questioned in relation to gang-related activities which have allegedly resulted in spikes in criminal activities in recent weeks, particularly in the Port of Spain district.

More on this as it becomes available.
