A prison officer working as a driver in the prison service motor pool was held at his St Augustine home on Thursday for the possession of a car that was reported stolen last month.
Police said members of the Stolen Vehicles Squad they went to the man’s home at around 10.30 am to follow up on enquiries and found the car with fake registration plates. The man, who is in his mid-forties, and a female relative were held in relation to the find, but the relative was eventually released.
Police said the car, a Kia Sportage, was reported when it left the Port of Spain Port on September 11, but never arrived at the Southern Sales and Services warehouse in Aranguez where it was expected. Investigators from the Stolen Vehicles Squad are continuing enquiries.
