A VENEZUELAN was expected to appear before a Port-of-Spain magistrate on Friday charged with a series of offences arising out of a road traffic stop last Sunday.
A police press release said Dawel Argenis Noriega Solozano, 24, of Centenary Street, California, Couva, was charged by Cpl Thomas of the St James Police Station, with possession of a firearm, dangerous driving, driving without a valid certificate of insurance and driver’s permit and uttering a forged document.
The charges stem from an incident on June 27 during which police stopped a white Tiida car which was seen being driven in a dangerous manner. The driver was the only occupant.
During a search, the officers found an AR15 assault rifle wrapped in plastic and cloth.
The man was arrested and later charged after further investigations.
