Officers of the TTPS have arrested and charged a Colombian who was in possession of seven kilogrammes of marijuana. The arrest was made during an anti-crime exercise on Sunday 15th November 2020 which was a joint effort between the Western and Northern Divisions.

The charges were laid today.

The exercise saw the officers making their way to Macoya Settlement, Tunapuna, based on information received.
