Two held with loaded gun, drugs

A loaded 9mm firearm was seized Thursday night during a police exercise by officers of the North Eastern Division Task Force.

The exercise was co-ordinated by Snr Supt Sagramsingh, Supt Pragg, ASP Sooker, Inspector James, Sgt Guelmo, Cpl Majeed and Cpl Lavia, among several others.

The officers executed several search warrants in Morvant, which led to the arrests of two persons, including one who allegedly had in his possession a quantity of cocaine, and one man who was held on allegations of possession of marijuana.

Both men are expected to be brought before a Port of Spain Magistrate on Thursday to answer the charges.

The officers also allegedly found and seized a Berreta 9 mm pistol with 15rds 9 mm ammo in an abandoned lot in El Socorro.
