Robbers claim poverty drove them to crime

Two men who beat and robbed a Table­land fam­i­ly of more than $.5 mil­lion were each sen­tenced to four years in prison on Thurs­day.

One of their ac­com­plices was shot and killed by the po­lice. Nicholas Alexan­der, 22, and Josi­ah Bobb, 18, both of St Mar­garet’s Vil­lage, Clax­ton Bay, blamed pover­ty for their ac­tions and asked for a sec­ond chance.

They plead­ed guilty in the Rio Claro Mag­is­trates Court to three of­fences of rob­bery with vi­o­lence. Alexan­der al­so plead­ed guilty to pos­ses­sion of a firearm and am­mu­ni­tion.

They were among five men, armed with firearms, who ac­cost­ed a 56-year-old old gro­cery pro­pri­etor at his home around 9.20 pm on April 27.

Pros­e­cu­tor Sgt Shazeed Mo­hammed said he was struck on his face sev­er­al times with a gun. They tied him up and stole his $2,000 wrist watch. While they were ran­sack­ing the house, Mo­hammed said the man’s niece and nephew ar­rived home. They were ac­cost­ed by two of the in­trud­ers who forced them in­to their home.

'What have we become?' PM mourns murdered friend, wife

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley this morning shared his childhood memories of murdered Tobago resident, John Mills.

Mills, 69, and his wife of 40 years, Eulyn John, were found with their hands and feet bound and throats slit at their home at Buccoo New Road on Thursday.

The motive for the double murder has not yet been determine.

In a Facebook post, Rowley said he and Mills (John) grew up together in poverty, but violence and criminality were never part of their lives. And he questioned what had become of the next generation.

He wrote, “With my classmate and buddy John "Joker" Mills at our Alma Mater Bishop's High School last year. John and his wife were brutally slain by an intruder in their bedroom on Wednesday night in Tobago. What have we become? What are we producing as "the next generation"? John and I grew up together in poverty, with pride, but violence and criminality were never part of our life. Instead we shared lunch money and loved one another as we worked hard in the classroom and competed fiercely on the sports fields, honouring our parents, neighbours and respecting all adults.

This brings To­ba­go's mur­der toll to five for 2019.

‘April exploded into a bloodbath’

In a na­tion al­ready reel­ing from some of the high­est mur­der rates in the world, April proved to be the blood­i­est month this year.

Some 49 peo­ple were mur­dered in just 30 days. That rep­re­sent­ed a 25 per cent in­crease over the 39 peo­ple killed in April 2018, ac­cord­ing to of­fi­cial da­ta from the Crime and Prob­lem Analy­sis Unit of the TTPS (see side box).

The killings came in clus­ters. Over the four-day East­er week­end, the death toll jumped by 11 when po­lice tal­lied homi­cides from un­re­lat­ed in­ci­dents. Five peo­ple were killed in 24 hours be­tween April 26 and 27. A fam­i­ly of four, in­clud­ing a sev­en-year-old girl, was found with their throats slit in a car in To­co on April 12. An­oth­er fam­i­ly of three was shot to death in their ve­hi­cle in Corinth on April 29.

“April ex­plod­ed in­to a blood­bath,” said crim­i­nol­o­gist Dau­rius Figueira, whose re­search spe­cialis­es in the drug trade.


Link Text


As of April 30, the over­all homi­cide toll was 169, just five few­er over the same pe­ri­od in 2018. Mur­ders climbed from 120 at the end of March 2019 to 169 by the end of April, a 41 per cent in­crease.

The num­ber of homi­cides in April ex­ceed­ed the 2019 month­ly av­er­age of 42. If killings con­tin­ue at this rate, Trinidad and To­ba­go is on course to add to its grim track record of sur­pass­ing 500 mur­ders for a sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year — and for the fourth time in the na­tion’s his­to­ry.

3 killed; cop, girl, 14, injured in Carenage shootout

Three peo­ple were killed and six oth­ers, in­clud­ing a po­lice of­fi­cer, were wound­ed dur­ing a shootout be­tween West­ern Di­vi­sion of­fi­cers and res­i­dents of Big Yard, Care­nage, this evening.

Res­i­dents said a teenage girl and the God­son of Prime Min­is­ter Dr Kei­th Row­ley were among the dead. How­ev­er, the names of the vic­tims are yet to be re­vealed.

The TTPS said in a state­ment that West­ern Di­vi­sion of­fi­cers on pa­trol in Care­nage were at­tempt­ing to ar­rest a sus­pect who was lim­ing on the street with a group of men when the in­ci­dent hap­pened. It said as the of­fi­cers were try­ing to ap­pre­hend the sus­pect, an­oth­er man drew a gun and opened fire on the of­fi­cers around 7.30 pm. It said a po­lice of­fi­cer was shot but the of­fi­cer re­turned fire, strik­ing the shoot­er. It added that in the ex­change of gun­fire three peo­ple were fa­tal­ly wound­ed.

The girl, 14, was said to have been walk­ing along the street when she was hit by a stray bul­let.

Res­i­dents said the ex­change of bul­lets sound­ed like "fire­works." How­ev­er, they are now call­ing for Com­mis­sion­er of Po­lice Gary Grif­fith to thor­ough­ly in­ves­ti­gate the ac­tion of the of­fi­cers.

Spike in police-related killings in 2019


As po­lice con­front a sus­tained wave of vi­o­lent crime in the coun­try, some 23 peo­ple have been killed in of­fi­cer-in­volved shoot­ings this year, a 64% in­crease over a sim­i­lar pe­ri­od in 2018.

Cocorite under siege from criminals

A community silenced. Threats, gunshots and all manner of crime is the norm for residents living in some parts of Cocorite. Speaking to the Express only on the condition of anonymity, one resident, speaking for her neighbours, shared her story.

“Rat-a-tat-tat-tat is the sound I wake up to almost every day and hear again before turning in for the night,” she said.

“I am no gun expert but I can tell difference between hearing an automatic weapon and a hand-held gun. Waterhole, Cocorite has been besieged with gunfire and gang activity, which has left residents too terrified to speak.”

Seeing men walking in people’s backyard with guns is quite common, said the woman.

“Even if a resident wanted to report a crime to police, chances are they would feel less compelled to do so in fear of repercussions from gang members,” she said.

Two killings push murder toll to 206

less than hour ago
Sun May 26 2019

The mur­der toll went up again yes­ter­day af­ter two mid-af­ter­noon shoot­ings less than an hour apart in San Juan and Trou Macaque, Laven­tille.

In the first in­ci­dent, at around 3.30 pm, San Juan res­i­dents thought they were com­ing to the aid of an ac­ci­dent vic­tim when they saw a Nis­san Wingroad had crashed in­to a light pole along the Sad­dle Road.

How­ev­er, when they ar­rived on the spot to aid the car’s dri­ver, 27-year-old Trevor Don­ald, they re­alised that the in­juries that ul­ti­mate­ly con­tributed to his death were far from ac­ci­den­tal. They dis­cov­ered Don­ald slumped in the front seat bleed­ing from two gun­shot wounds to the head. He died at the scene.

Po­lice who ar­rived on the scene lat­er found two spent shells in the car.

His killer, whom wit­ness­es be­lieve may have been in the car, re­port­ed­ly fled the scene on foot as peo­ple came to Don­ald’s aid un­aware that a mur­der had just tak­en place.

In an un­re­lat­ed in­ci­dent about a half an hour lat­er, Ka­fari Wil­son was shot near the Plan­nings build­ing in Trou Macaque. He was tak­en to the Port-of-Spain Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal where he was pro­nounced dead.

These shoot­ings raised the mur­der toll for the year to 206.

Family escapes kidnapping attempt, warns drivers of danger

After narrowly escaping a kidnapping attempt in Santa Cruz last night, a Central couple is calling on drivers to be cautious while driving after dark.

Newsday spoke to the couple, who said they were driving their car at around 8.10 pm from Maraval into Santa Vale, Santa Cruz, when a white Hyundai Elantra overtook their car and stopped in front of them.

Three men dressed in black exited the car and tried opening the passenger's side door and ordered the driver to unlock the door.

"It was a really frightening experience, especially since our 5-year-old son was sleeping in the back seat," said the 25-year-old woman.

"It's a good thing another car was coming up behind us. That seemed to frighten them (the men) off. I don't know what would have happened because that stretch of road between Maraval to Santa Cruz is very dark. We want drivers to be aware of this and keep all their doors locked."
