Couple in custody for stolen vehicle

A man and his girlfriend are in custody after police recovered a stolen vehicle in Cunupia, while officers are on the hunt for two suspects after they recovered a stolen vehicle and a cell phone shortly after a Robbery with Aggravation incident which occurred Wednesday in Trincity.

Two suspects are now in custody after police recovered a stolen vehicle during an anti-crime exercise in Cunupia.

Around 2 pm, a man received a call that two persons were pushing his Blue Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 6 outside of his home, located at Wendy Fitzwilliams Boulevard, Diego Martin. When he checked sometime later, he observed that the vehicle was missing, along with one Miller Wielding Plan, valued at $3000.

However, during an exercise conducted in the Cunupia Police Station District yesterday, the Blue Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 6 was recovered and two suspects, a 39-year-old man and his 29-year-old girlfriend were arrested. The exercise was conducted by members of the West End Criminal Investigations Department with the assistance of the Western Divisional Gang Unit.

Meanwhile, police reports indicate that around 10.30 pm on Wednesday 31st, a man arrived at his Casselton Gardens, Trincity home and while opening his front gate, a white Ad Wagon pulled up along his vehicle. Two men exited and approached the man. One of the assailants pointed a firearm in his direction and demanded the keys for his Honda City vehicle. The man complied and he was also relieved of one Samsung cell phone. The men then entered the victim’s vehicle and drove off in convoy with the white Ad Wagon in a westerly direction along the said street.

Officers responded and mounted a search for the stolen vehicle. Around 11:33 pm whilst officers of the San Juan Criminal Investigations Department (CID) were on mobile patrol, they observed a white Honda City parked along Bushe Street, San Juan.

The vehicle matched the description of the one recently stolen in the Arouca District. The said vehicle was subsequently processed and returned to the victim. Also, officers of the Arouca Chargeroom tracked the victim’s cell phone to a location in the vicinity of Dinsley Village, Tacarigua, where it was as retrieved. Officers are actively engaged in the search for the two suspects.

Additionally, Maloney CID and Maloney Crime Patrol arrested a suspect wanted in connection with several recent breakings, during an anti-crime exercise yesterday. The officers gathered intelligence then proceeded to Building 20, West Maloney Gardens, D’abadie, where a 22-year-old suspect was arrested.

The exercise was spearheaded by Snr. Supt. Montrichard, Supt. Carty, ASP Pitt and supervised by PC Williams.
