(TRINIDAD GUARDIAN) – A 55-year-old coconut vendor was arrested during a joint exercise by members of the Port-of-Spain CID and Task Force early yesterday for trafficking cocaine around the Queen’s Park Savannah near Queen’s Royal College.
Shortly before 2 am, officers from St Clair/Woodbrook Police Station led by acting Inspector Badry noticed the vendor acting suspiciously.
They searched his cart and reportedly found cocaine and paraphernalia used to cut the illicit drugs.
Officers suspect the vendor was selling the drugs to vagrants in and around Woodbrook.
They took the man to St Clair/Woodbrook Police Station for processing but he complained of feeling unwell while in a holding cell at the station. He was taken for medical treatment.
