A 54-year-old Santa Cruz man is in police custody after he was arrested at his workplace in relation to a conspiracy to commit murder.
Police said members of the Special Operations Response Team (SORT) went to WASA's Laventille office just before 10 am on Thursday. They arrested him and seized a pistol.
They took the man to the San Juan police station, where he is expected to be interviewed. Investigators said the man, who is a senior member of a religious organisation, intended to commit the murder as soon as he finished work.
WASA in a subsequent press release, stated that the man who was arrested, is not an employee of the Authority but was working for a contractor recruited by WASA to carry out certain works.
