Three men have been arrested and will be charged with robbery and possession of a firearm and ammunition.
Three men, a 32 year old man from Bazalion Court Tunapuna, a 26 year old man from Paul Street Arima and a 26 year old man of Manimore Road Fiver Rivers Arouca were arrested.
The men had only moments earlier robbed the La Horquetta man who had been awaiting transportation on the Port-of-Spain taxi stand in Arima. He was robbed of a quantity of cash, his mobile phone and other personal items before the men escaped in a Green Mazda 323.
Upon searching the vehicle following the interception, officers found a Beretta Pistol with a magazine and three rounds of 9mm ammunition.
Investigations are continuing.
