Tobago man, 56, found with marijuana at Scarborough Port

A Scarborough mechanic was arrested and a quantity of marijuana seized by officers of the Tobago Divisional Task Force during an anti-crime exercise conducted at the Scarborough Port over the weekend.

Officers conducted the exercise around 7:30 pm on Sunday during which they observed a white Nissan AD Wagon with a male driver disembark the T&T Spirit fast ferry.

The driver attempted to exit the Port compound hastily.

The vehicle was stopped and searched which resulted in a black plastic bag containing 2.015 kilogrammes of marijuana being found hidden under the driver’s seat.

The drug has an estimated street value of $20,150.

The suspect; a 56-year-old of Sangster’s Hill, Scarborough, was arrested in connection with the find.

Investigations are ongoing.
