2 Tobago policewomen charged

Marijuana seized

TWO policewomen based in Tobago have been charged and along with other people, are expected to appear before a Scarborough Magistrate tomorrow for possession of marijuana.

According to police, at 2 pm on Friday, PC Edwards and other members of the Tobago Task Force and the Organised Criminal Gangs and Narcotics Unit executed a warrant for dangerous drugs at the home of a 65-year-old man at Union Village in Plymouth Road.

A search was conducted in the presence of the man and a female relative who is a Special Reserve Police (SRP) officer.

The SRP who is originally from Maloney was last based at Tobago's Inter Agency Task Force and recently gave birth to a baby. She is on maternity leave.

Sunday Newsday understands that as the officers approached the fenced property, the senior citizen was seen tending to a number of marijuana trees planted in pots.

The officers arrested the man and commenced a search of the residence, where a quantity of compressed marijuana was seized. In all, three people including the SRP were arrested.

In an unrelated incident, a police constable from the Crown Point police station was arrested at her Mason Hall home which she shared with her common-law husband during an earlier exercise on Friday.

According to a police source, this officer who has less than two years service was held with a quantity of marijuana after a search warrant was executed at her home by officers of the Organised Criminal Gangs and Narcotics Unit.
