The 20-year old man was arrested in Sangre Grande on Thursday.
Officers, acting on intelligence, went to an area that is known to be the home of several drug blocks. There officers detained the suspect with 11 marijuana trees.
He will appear before a Sangre Grande Magistrate on Thursday charged with cultivating a dangerous drug.
The current legislation for marijuana possession only allows persons to have up to 30 grammes, and up to four marijuana plants per household- two males and two females.
The suspect hailed from the North Eastern Settlement.
