The Trinidad Police have announced that one of the most wanted men in the country has been captured. The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, however, did not disclose the suspect’s identity to the press. The only clue given was that the captured man had been involved in several shooting-related offenses.
According to the TTPS, the suspect was captured on Saturday during the ‘Operation Strike Back’ exercise. His arrest was a result of serious intelligence work. At the time of his arrest, he was found in possession of a Glock 17 pistol, an extended magazine, a magazine which contained 8 rounds of 9mm bullets, and another 32 rounds of 9mm bullets.
The TTPS also announced that since a series of arrests were made in the region, there have been no shooting crimes or gang-related activities. Over the last week, a little over 250 individuals have been arrested in relation to several crimes.
Gary Griffith, the Police Commissioner, has spoken with law-abiding citizens to exercise patience with the police as they might face some inconvenience from the different operations. He said they were necessary to bring to an end criminal activity which has been on the rise in recent times.
