Venezuelan among three held in high speed chase

A Venezuelan man is one of three people held this morning following a high-speed chase in Chaguaramas.  

The trio were held at about 12.30am today along the Western Main Road. 

Officers of the Western Division Task Force were doing routine patrols when they observed a silver Nissan Wing Road moving at a high speed in the vicinity of Crews Inn. 

This drew the suspicions of the officers who gave chase.

As a result of the find, the three men were detained and taken into custody. 

They are to be questioned, following which, they will all be brought before a Port of Spain Magistrate.
