Officers spot stolen vehicle, two held following high-speed chase

Vigilant work by officers of the Traffic and Highway Patrol Branch, resulted in the arrest of two suspects and the recovery of a vehicle which was reported stolen a short time earlier in the Southern Division.
Reports indicate that around 1 pm, on Thursday 25th August, 2022, a black Toyota Aqua was taken at gunpoint from its owner at C3 Centre, San Fernando.
The two armed suspects then proceeded north along the Sir Solomon Hochoy Highway with the vehicle.
A report was made to the police and an all-points bulletin issued by the Command Centre.
The vehicle was subsequently observed proceeding north along the Uriah Butler Highway in the vicinity of Charlieville, by officers of the Traffic and Highway Patrol Branch.
The officers gave chase and intercepted the vehicle at the Mt. Hope Hospital.
Assistance was sought from officers of the Northern and North-Eastern Divisions to locate the two suspects who had fled the vehicle and onto the hospital compound.
They were found hiding on the compound shortly after and arrested in connection with the incident.
Investigations are ongoing.
