Two police officers who were held in Rousillac on Tuesday are to be charged with drugs and firearm-related offences.
This was reported in a tweet from the Police Service account posted on Friday night.
Sources said the officers left a police station in Port of Spain, telling seniors they were going out on enquiries.
They then drove all the way to Cedros. At 5 pm, South-Western Division officers on mobile patrol, became suspicious when they spotted the PoS police vehicle escorting another vehicle which contained men known to be from the underworld.
The officers called on the two police officers to pull their vehicle to the side of the road but, instead, they sped off at high speed.
The police officers who were giving chase called for back-up and a roadblock was set up which eventually led to the PoS officers coming to a halt.
As the illegal items were found in the police vehicle, the two officers were ordered to surrender their sidearms and police ID cards. They were then arrested by Sgt Ali of the Southern Division Task Force.
No information was provided on when the two officers were scheduled to appear in court.
