An unemployed man from Mt Hope, who was
arrested on Tuesday with three high-powered guns
and a large cache of ammunition in the trunk of
his car, is expected to appear in court this morning.
The 35-year-old suspect was detained at the Arima
Police Station up to yesterday evening and was being
interrogated by detectives over the illegal weapons,
which include a Chinese variant of the Russian-
designed AK-47 assault rifle which is capable of
piercing bulletproof vests.
According to reports, around 3 pm, the suspect
was driving in his Toyota Yaris along Mt Hope Road
when he was stopped by police.
While searching his car trunk, police found the
rifle, 108 rounds of 7.62 calibre ammunition, a Glock
9 mm pistol with 15 rounds of ammunition and a
.357 Magnum revolver with 36 rounds of ammuni-
Marijuana with an approximate street value of
$25,000 was also found and seized.
The suspect is expected to be charged for the illegal
possession of guns and ammunition as well as an
additional charge for marijuana trafficking.
The exercise was co-ordinated by Supt Hosein and
included Insp Mark Maharaj, Sgt Ishmael Pitt and
Cpl Ricardo Pamphille.
A 22-year-old man and his two teenage
friends, accused of hijacking a taxi and beating
the driver unconscious before dumping him in
a forested area in Biche, have been released on
Jeremy Joseph and his two 17-year-old neigh-
bours, all of Vega de Oropouche, Sangre Grande,
were granted bail in the Sangre Grande First
Magistrate Court on Tuesday after spending the
weekend in jail.
The trio appeared in court last Friday, charged
with the attempted murder, kidnapping and rob-
bery of taxi driver Dale Reid.
They were initially denied bail by Senior Mag-
istrate Ejenny Espinet as police prosecutors were
unable to produce their criminal records.
In his bail application their lawyer Fareed Ali
refered to the records which showed that his
clients did not have any convictions or pending
Espinet placed Joseph and one of the teens on
$100,000 bail each while the other teenager was
granted $90,000 bail.
Ali asked Espinet for a cash alternative as
claimed that his clients families did not own
any property which could be used to secure bail.
His application was denied by the magistrate,
who said she could not approve his request
because of the serious nature of the charges.
On July 5, Reid was plying his car for hire
between Toco and Sangre Grande, when he picked
up a group of passengers at Vega de Oropouche
taxi stand in Sangre Grande.
Reid, 30, was beaten, robbed and was thrown
off a precipice in the Charuma forest as his
attackers drove off in his car.
A passerby contacted police and Reid was
found and taken to hospital.
The accused, who were arrested hours after
Reid was found, will reappear in court on July

Analysis Branch (CAPA), the Northern Division has seized
more illegal guns than any of the other eight policing
districts, and detectives of that area expect to eclipse the
102 seizures they recorded last year.
