According to police reports yesterday at 2 o’clock officers in Sea Lots arrested four men and seized a kilo of compressed marijuana.
They are expected to appear before a Port-of-Spain Magistrate today.
Meanwhile a report in the Guardian Newspaper today quote residents in the area as saying that if the 39-year-old man held by police in connection with the sudden disappearance of constable Nyasha Joseph is released by police, he will not be welcomed back in the community.
