A police constable assigned to the Southern
Division attempted to walk out of the Princes
Town Police Station minutes after he was arrested
and brought in for possession of a stolen vehicle.
Police also found a revolver and ammunition in
his car, which was being driven by another man
and trailing him.
T&T Guardian was told that the officer, aged 38,
was held by a party of police officers from the
Princes Town Police Station acting on a tip-off.
The officer was driving a white Toyota Corolla
wagon and another man, believed to be known
by the officer, was driving his (the officer s) vehicle
a few metres behind him. The officers, who inter-

the wagon and found that it was stolen from
the San Fernando area.

attempted to walk out of the building, how-
