A 35-year-old man from Pierre Trace in Lendore Village, Chaguanas, was arrested on Tuesday afternoon for demanding money by menace during an anti-crime exercise in the Central Division.
A police report said at around 3 pm, the police responded to a report of demanding money by menace and "strategically organised a sting operation" at Ron’s Friendly Supermarket at Lendore Village.
