Cop ‘loses’ gun while in grocery store

A police constable assigned to the Special Branch reported his service-issued gun and 17 rounds of .9 mm ammunition missing on Friday afternoon.

Police said the officer parked his car in the car park of a grocery along Golden Grove, Arouca. He placed the gun with ammunition and $1300 in a brown pouch behind the driver's seat, before entering the grocery.

When he returned at about 2.40 pm, he realised the pouch with the gun, ammunition and cash was gone.

The were no signs of forced entry, police said.

He made a report to the Arouca Police Station.

Last month, Insp Christopher Fuentes reportedly lost his police-issued Sig Sauer pistol while sleeping at his Sangre Grande home.

In another incident, a retired police inspector also reportedly had his 13 gauge shotgun stolen when returning from a hunting trip in the Heights of Guanapo, Arima.

Called a 'pussy', man commits murder

A High Court judge has sentenced a man to 35 years in jail after he shot and killed another in broad daylight after being called a “pussy”.

Justice Brian Cottle imposed the sentence on 33-year-old Andy Quashie who will also serve 14 years in jail for possession of a firearm. The sentences will run concurrently.

The court heard that Quashie, along with Billy Adams and Adolphus Foyle, were in Layou, a small town located on the west coast of the island, when they saw 35-year-old Joseph Evans “Tuffy” Lynch.

Lynch is reported to have referred to Quashie as a “pussy” and this remark upset Quashie and his friends, with Quashie and Adams leaving the area to get their firearms at home.

The court heard that on their return, they saw Lynch walking along the public road and Quashie shot and wounded him. As he lay on the ground, Quashie shot him again, killing him.

One arrested, gun, marijuana seized

Members of the Inter Agency Task Force did a series of overnight patrols in East Port of Spain, which led to one man being arrested and a gun, ammunition and marijuana seized.

Police said at around 8.58 they were on patrol near the South East Port of Spain Government Secondary School, when they searched a 22-year-old man and found 12.5 grams of marijuana.

He was charged with the possession of marijuana for trafficking as he was found within 500 meters of a school.
Police then went to the roof of the George Street Planning where they found a Glock 22 pistol with a magazine containing 10 rounds of .40 caliber ammunition. No one was arrested in relation to this find.

The exercise was coordinated and spearheaded by Snr Supt Simboondath Rajkumar.

According to your link (* TNT GUARDIAN) YTD = 118 murders

2018 equivalents = 133 murders

Percentage reduction = 1500/133 = 11.27%

Where is the 29% coming from?

I can only draw one conclusion from the above...perhaps two.

Woman robbed of Sou Sou money

A 37-year-old Freeport woman was robbed of $6,000 while standing in her Tewarie Road, home yesterday morning.

Police said the woman was standing in her yard at around 8.55 am when she was approached by a man holding a cutlass who ordered her to "hand over the Sou Sou money."

She gave the man the cash as he ran away. She made a report to the police who are continuing investigations

Firstly, there is a clear distinction between being accepted at a uni and graduating.

Secondly, I am not convinced that such a dunce attended Florida State...but just in case he did, to study what?

Before I hazard a guess, Mr. bravos, please tell us what you studied at Florida State.

A man who attended at Florida State cannot work out a percentage reduction...unbelievable...incroyable.

No one will ever convince me that Mr. bravos understood the concept of per capita.

Plot to kill 5 prison officers uncovered

A plot by pris­on­ers to kill five prison of­fi­cers has been un­cov­ered by the Spe­cial Op­er­a­tions Re­sponse Team.

In­for­ma­tion from a con­fi­den­tial re­port sug­gests that the threat is re­lat­ed to an in­ci­dent which took place at the Max­i­mum Se­cu­ri­ty Prison in Arou­ca where a cell­phone was con­fis­cat­ed from a gang mem­ber.

The of­fi­cers have been alert­ed about the threats and se­cu­ri­ty mea­sures have been put in place to pro­tect them.

Com­ment­ing on the lat­est threat, Na­tion­al Se­cu­ri­ty Min­is­ter Stu­art Young said he had al­ready spo­ken to both the act­ing Com­mis­sion­er of Pris­ons Dane Clarke and Com­mis­sion­er of Po­lice Gary Grif­fith about the con­tents of the re­port.

“Threats of vi­o­lence to any prison of­fi­cer or any of­fi­cer at­tached to any of the ser­vices un­der the Min­istry of Na­tion­al Se­cu­ri­ty will not be tol­er­at­ed. I have asked that an in­ter-agency ap­proach be de­ployed to deal with this in­ci­dent. This is be­ing treat­ed as a pri­or­i­ty and re­sources are be­ing de­ployed to deal with the threat,” Young stat­ed.

3 people fooled and robbed, on All Fools Day

What at first seemed like an All Fool's Day prank, turned out to be a robbery at a store in Princes Town on Monday.

Around 9.15 a.m. a sales clerk at Courts on High Street said she placed two 40 inch Samsung televisions each valued $3,699 on a shelf and went into a stock room.

When she returned 20 minutes later, the televisions had mysteriously disappeared.

After searching the premises without success, she and her co-workers viewed CCTV footage which showed that a man entered the store, took up the televisions and walked out with them.

A report was made to the Princes Town CID and officers were given a description of the perpetrator.

PC Rampersad is continuing investigations.

In an unrelated incident, two Couva men who were tricked by a fake advertisement were robbed of $5,000 and their cell phones on All Fools Day.

The victims - aged 21 and 27 - were robbed by thieves who pretended they had a Nissan Tiida for sale.

On Monday around 6.15 p.m. the two victims went to London Street, La Romaine, where they were told they would meet someone to negotiate the sale of the car.

instead they were greeted by two men armed with guns, who held them up and took $5,000 cash which was intended to be a down payment on the car, and their cellphones valued $2,800.

The thieves ran off and escaped with cash and cellphones.

The victims reported the incident to the San Fernando CID and PC Gosine is continuing investigations.

After years of abuse, cancer stricken woman beaten, strangled

A cancer stricken woman was found beaten and strangled to death on Sunday in her home in Penal.

An autopsy performed on the body Lisha Ramnath, 39, found that she died by manual strangulation and blunt force trauma to the head.

Ramnath lived at Clarke Road.

Relatives say that she was diagnosed with bone cancer in November.

She had been in an abusive relationship for about three years, and had obtained a restraining order against a man last year.

According to relatives, Ramnath, who had no children, was seen fighting and quarrelling with a man in the village. The man would often beat her savagely, and the assaults were so common that she was permanently disfigured, with cut lips, crossed eyes, and sunken face.

Hit man stopped on the way to prison officer execution

Less than two days after the lives of prison officers were threatened, police have detained a man suspected to be a “hitman” on his way to kill a senior prison officer.

The suspect was detained on Wednesday night, at Oropune Gardens, Piarco, by officers of the Special Operations Response Team (SORT).

Police said they received intelligence that the man was targeting a first division prison officer, and was at the time on his way to pick up an accomplice.

Police said when the suspect was intercepted he was driving a vehicle that they suspect was stolen.

Prison officers have been on heightened alert since Monday after a confrontation in the Remand Yard Section of Golden Grove Prison in Arouca, led to a group of prisoners making open threats against officers, as well as the lives of their families.

Assassination plot backfires: Hitman shoots ‘boss’

A 33-year-old man who is believed to have organised the death of an associate is in critical condition under police guard at the Port of Spain General Hospital after he was reportedly shot by the same man he hired to kill a businessman.

Police said the suspect met with his intended target, a 35-year-old Sangre Grande businessman, at El Socorro South at around 10.35 am yesterday to discuss a personal issue.
The businessman told the suspect to get into his car to talk, but he was hesitant.
After a while he got in and while they were talking, a gunman hired by the suspect fired at the car, hitting both the target and the man who hired him to do the killing.

Chemical engineer escapes 2nd hit on life

For the sec­ond time in weeks, busi­ness­man Ra­jesh Heer­alal sur­vived an at­tack against his life when his killer’s gun jammed af­ter the first three shots on Thurs­day.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors are prob­ing the the­o­ry that Heer­alal, 33, of Ch­agua­nas, a chem­i­cal en­gi­neer who man­u­fac­tures his own de­ter­gents, may have hit on his head which was put out by a com­peti­tor.

While po­lice con­tin­ued to search for Heer­alal’s at­tack­er yes­ter­day, it was sus­pect­ed he was a hired hit­man.

Ac­cord­ing to a re­port, Heer­alal and a work­er were car­ry­ing out sales out­side the Cher­ish Su­per­mar­ket along Latchoos Road, Pe­nal, at the time of the at­tack. While of­fload­ing liq­uid de­ter­gent from a truck, a man walked up, pulled out a gun that was hid­den in his pants and fired three shots at close range. Heer­alal was hit on his thigh, fore­arm and shoul­der, but as the gun­man at­tempt­ed to de­liv­er the kill shot the gun jammed. Sur­veil­lance footage showed that when the gun jammed the gun­man ran off, al­though still at­tempt­ing to fire more shots.

Pe­nal po­lice re­spond­ed to a re­port of the shoot­ing and Heer­alal was tak­en to the Pe­nal Health Cen­tre where he was treat­ed and trans­ferred to the San Fer­nan­do Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal. Po­lice said he re­mained there in a sta­ble con­di­tion up to last night.

The gun­man was able to get away but po­lice were able to get a de­scrip­tion of him through the CCTV footage. The gun­man wore a blue jack­et, blue three-quar­ter den­im pants, a pair of slip­pers, a black cap and a pair of sun­glass­es.

In March, Heer­alal was in Bam­boo Set­tle­ment, Val­sayn, when a gun­man al­so at­tempt­ed to shoot him. Heer­alal got away on that oc­ca­sion. The at­tack­er then was dressed sim­i­lar­ly to the gun­man in yes­ter­day’s at­tack.

POLICE have noted a new trend developing in this country where predators, in order to avoid detection and prosecution, are resorting to drugging minors who are then raped. In some cases, the rape leads to a pregnancy that the child or teen cannot explain to her parents and the police. This has led the police to issue new warnings to young girls and their parents to be extra vigilant.

In confirming that sexual penetration continues to be the number one offence committed against minors in TT, Sgt Michelle Lewis of the Child Protection Unit (CPU) yesterday confirmed to Newsday, that drugs are being administered via food or drinks to minors who are then raped but are left with no recollection of the assault.

Lewis spoke on the issue with Newsday after addressing the weekly police press briefing at the Police Administration Building, Port of Spain. She said there have been cases of minors being drugged either through food or drink and later learn they are pregnant without having any recollection of how it happened.

Ex-cop T&T’s most wanted

ACCUSED child killer Darwin Ghouralal is one of Trinidad and Tobago’s most wanted.

The police officer is supposed to stand trial for the 2011 murder of eight-year-old Daniel Guerra.

Ghouralal, a police detective who was regularly featured in the media capturing criminals during his 15 years of service, has been on the run for almost six years.

His colleagues have been mandated by a bench warrant from a High Court judge to arrest him.

Ghouralal had previously been in custody for Daniel’s murder, but was freed by a magistrate after a prelimi­nary enquiry in the San Fernando Magistrates’ Court cleared him of the charge.

Shopkeeper gunned down in La Horquetta

A moth­er got her worst night­mare on Wednesday when she saw the body of her mur­dered son cir­cu­lat­ing on so­cial me­dia from her home in New York.

Christo­pher “John­nie” Kan­hai, a shop­keep­er was shot dead right at his par­lour at Chameleon Av­enue, in Phase 6, La Hor­quet­ta. An­oth­er man, po­lice said, was al­so shot and wound­ed.

The in­ci­dent oc­curred at about 2 pm.

The fa­ther of the mur­der vic­tim, Ter­rence Nanan, stood in shock as he looked at the life­less body of his son sprawled across the par­lour’s en­trance.

He said min­utes af­ter his son was killed a pho­to of his son’s body was post­ed on so­cial me­dia. This prompt­ed his wife to call him to ask if it was true.

While po­lice are yet to de­ter­mine a mo­tive for the killing, res­i­dents be­lieve that there was an on­go­ing turf war in the area where sense­less shoot­ings and mur­ders were tak­ing place.

Gary to reduce police stations from 77 to 30

There are 77 police stations spread throughout Trinidad and Tobago, manned by 2,300 police officers.

But do we need so many police stations?

According to Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith, the answer is no.

Speaking at a community meeting at Mayaro/Rio Claro Regional Corporation yesterday, Griffith said he intends to reduce the number of police station to about 30.

And soon citizens would have no reason to visit police stations as reports can be filed online.

'Buju' bandits prowl: $142,000 robbery in Chaguanas

Reports of robberies and larcenies continued to come in throughout the nine policing divisions on Tuesday, with The Express being told of at least four reports of robbery with aggravation, and four reports of larceny (including housebreaking, store-breaking, and of the person).

Police, as a result, are once again reminding citizens to be cautious and not to make themselves easy targets for criminal elements.

This comes after both National Security Minister Stuart Young and Beyond the Tape host Insp Roger Alexander made comments on Monday alluding to a possible spike in crime due to “an upcoming concert”.

It was later specified to The Express that, similar to the Carnival and Christmas periods, police were expecting a “surge” in robberies and larcenies prior to the I Am Legend concert, which is to be headlined by Jamaican mega dancehall and reggae artiste Buju Banton on Easter Sunday.

Among the eight reports which came in, was one in which an estimated $140,000 in cash was stolen from a saleswoman in Chaguanas.

THE body of an unidentified man was found floating in the Gulf of Paria near the Brighton Port in La Brea yesterday morning. Initially, it was believed to be one of two men who went missing last week Sunday during a fishing expedition near Carli Bay where two other men drowned.

But when Newsday spoke to grieving relatives who went to identify the body, they said it was neither that of Chunilal "Surin" Gyandass, 51, or Videsh Malo, 23, both of Beaucarro Road in Freeport.

At about 9 am yesterday, workers at the port located at the La Brea Industrial Development Company spotted the body floating and contacted the Coast Guard unit. The man was face-down and wearing a brown t-shirt and three-quarter pants. He has shoulder-length hair and of Indian descent.

SHOT DEAD: Kenneth Parris, shot four times in the head.
KENNETH Parris was a committed family man. The Ministry of Works and Transport employee drove his car as a private-hire (PH) taxi after working hours to provide for his family including buying milk and diapers for his five-month-old son.

During the early morning hours yesterday, Parris was held up, robbed and shot four times in the head by a bandit who came for his money. He died later while undergoing surgery at hospital.

At his Lyndon Street, Curepe home, shocked relatives were asking each other one question. Why did the bandits have to kill Parris? “They could have just taken the money and go, why did they have to shoot him for,” a relative asked.

Parris, 47, was shot by the bandit near the Barataria roundabout at around 2 am yesterday. Police confirmed that the father of three was shot in the head four times. They believe robbery was the motive for his murder.

“I promise that we will be in a bet­ter place on Au­gust 31 (the an­niver­sary of his ap­point­ment) to how we were last year, I do not in­tend to fail, I in­tend to do all that is re­quired but some­times we have to bleed to heal,” Grif­fith said.

“I could eas­i­ly sit back ne­go­ti­ate with crim­i­nal el­e­ments, not dri­ve for­ward and do what is re­quired and try to hope that the sta­tis­tics would show some­thing, I do not op­er­ate like that,” he said.

Grif­fith said every mur­der that takes place here af­fects him per­son­al­ly.

“Every sin­gle time there is a homi­cide I take it per­son­al­ly, so it af­fects me per­son­al­ly be­cause I see my­self as be­ing re­spon­si­ble,” he said.

POC GG has to hold Officers in Charge of Police stations accountable. He has to 'cane whip' these fellas & for it to trickle down to the constables in being professional & pro-active - they have to have a 'can do' & 'get it done' attitude! They have to, in a sustained manner, write summonses & make's that facting simple. confused evil

Murder victim’s father: ‘Close down churches’
THE FATHER of Honore Ifill, the 42-year-old killed in Morvant on Sunday night, said churches, which are supposed to teach morality and encourage people not to kill, are doing nothing to convince gunmen to change their ways, so they should all be closed down.

“The security services are trying their best but murders are an unforeseen thing,” said Ronald Ifill. “But the number of churches it have in this country and there is still so much killing – they should close all of them down. Every other day you are seeing fly-by-night churches opening up on every corner. They are supposed to be helping spiritually, but they are just looking for money.”

Crime has become so commonplace in the country it is somewhat accepted says Ambassador of the European Union to Trinidad and Tobago Aad Biesebroek.

Speaking at the launch of the ‘Life After Today’ initiative at the San Fernando West Secondary School on Tuesday, Biesebroek said more needs to be done to steer youths that might be going down the wrong path to a better place.

Biesebroek held up a copy of one of the daily newspapers and shuddered at some of the news headlines.

“Shot after shot – family of three shot dead in van.”

“Boy, 14, shot dead in liquor store.”

“Suspect killed in shootout with cops.”

“1 dead, 4 hurt in Morvant shooting.”

He said: “I think what we are looking at is a situation whereby violence has become the norm. Where it is almost accepted. We try to reach out to young people and tell them there are different ways in how you deal with conflict and how you interact with people.”

Biesebroek said it was important for young people to know they have control and can walk away from violence.

“They need to know they have better options to plan for their future,” he said.
