Narcotics valued at over $4.5 million dollars were seized by officers of the Western Division’s Gang Unit, during an anti-crime exercise conducted in the Port of Spain Division on Wednesday.
Officers conducted the exercise between 12:30 pm and 8:30 pm during which they proceeded to a building in Port-of-Spain occupied by a man.
A search of the premises resulted in three packets containing a quantity of cocaine being discovered in the man’s possession.
The officers then proceeded to conduct a search of a motor vehicle that was parked in the vicinity of the building with a lone male occupant.
The search resulted in officers finding six packets also containing cocaine.
The drugs have a combined weight of 3.3 kilogrammes and an approximate street value of TT$4,555,000.
The two men, a 37-year-old and a 34-year old, both of Diego Martin, were arrested.
