Rennie Siew and Naruba Roodal were arrested and charged on Tuesday after a raid at their home at Union Village, Couva. Police said, at about 5.30 pm members of the Central Division Task Force executed a search warrant at the couple’s home where they allegedly found one Glock pistol, one 9 mm pistol and 28 rounds of 9 mm ammunition. They also allegedly found 13 packets of marijuana with a street value of $58,000. PC Anand Kumar laid the charges. Siew and Roodal were expected to appear before a magistrate in the Couva court yesterday.
