The Trinidad and Tobago Scrap Iron Dealers Association is condemning the recent act of the theft of copper wires belonging to the Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT).
On Saturday, four copper thieves were beaten by residents of Mamoral after they were caught in the act.
The Scrap Iron dealers said while their Association does not support violence in any form, “we want to commend the residents for ensuring that the perpetrators were captured.”
“For many months, our Association has been calling and continues to call on persons to desist from stealing copper wires, manhole covers and other metals. The Association will once again be addressing this issue as well as responding to the statements made by the government of Trinidad and Tobago with regards to the Scrap Iron Industry at a media conference on Monday 08th August 2022 at 10:30am.
