A blue Mazda 323, reported stolen in Maloney, was recovered by police officers on April 3rd 2021 on the Caroni North Bank Road Piarco, in the vicinity of the Eastern Caribbean Institute of Agriculture and Forestry (ECIAF) UTT Campus.
While conducting a mobile patrol, PCs Wilson and Atkins observed the blue vehicle parked near the campus. On further inspection, the officers noted that in the back seat of the vehicle were four small brown goats and five ducks. There was also a hole on the northern side of the perimeter fence of the compound.
