Carenage man, 35, killed

A 35-year-old Carenage man became the country’s eleventh murder victim when he was shot by an unknown gunman on Thursday night.

Marcus Haynes of Upper L’anse Mitan, Carenage was not known to the police, but investigators believe he was killed by a gang member from the area.

At about 8.40 pm residents of Upper L’anse Mitan heard gunfire, after which they found Haynes lying face-down.

He was taken to the St James hospital where he died at about 9.17 pm.

Haynes was shot about six times. Investigators were told warring gangs from Upper L’anse Mitan were seen firing at each other before the murder.

Investigations are continuing.

When dealing with an illiterate who can't read nor count,
such statements are made as no murders for three days.

According to a police report, on Wednesday at about 1 pm, maxi taxi driver Cleavon Matiste was plying his maxi taxi in the Port of Spain-San Fernando route when three young men pretending to be passengers boarded the maxi taxi in Port-of-Spain.

Carenage man killed in gang war

Po­lice be­lieve gang turf war is be­hind the killing of Care­nage res­i­dent 35-year-old Mar­cus Haynes.

Haynes was lim­ing with a group of men at about 8.40 pm on Thurs­day when gun­men opened fire on them.

Haynes was shot sev­er­al times, in­clud­ing the chest, arms and legs. He was tak­en to the St James In­fir­mary where he died while un­der­go­ing med­ical treat­ment. Po­lice said it is be­lieved that the gang war be­tween two ri­val gangs in the area—the Mus­lims and Ras­ta City has resurged.

Sev­er­al res­i­dents in the area have ex­pressed frus­tra­tion over the shoot­ings and have called for a height­ened po­lice pres­ence.

A res­i­dent of the area, whose grand­son was al­so mur­dered in the on­go­ing turf war, said the po­lice some­times do not even take their calls.

Pressure form our brothers from the North too,doh worry we shoulders broad brothers,eat ah food man we go fix it..

A 21-year-old Jamaican man is in police custody after he and others allegedly robbed a maxi taxi driver in Laventille yesterday afternoon.


Now add all those Venes to the mix and we have a crime upsurge,it's a fact that immigrants are committing crime daily in T&T...

Now add local pests to the mix...and mind you our local pest prefer sell weed on the block and killing each other over petty beefs than robbing or the odd bigger robbery where they are just hands guided by the bigger 'bosses' who saying that's the 'system money' so no big deal.

That's why despite high murders general crime was an all time low just a few years ago.

And when they rob they hardly harm they even leave you with 'passage' money to get home if you reason with them,they have even left old ladies with their wedding rings which I personally witnessed in the late 90's and tanty was stern with them!! They replied 'arite tanty' smiling,if I was armed at the time they were dead men because they were very lax and laid back as most local pests are..there have been countless articles about 'polite/kind bandits',

The underlying fact is you can reason with Trinis still,no man going to involve innocent people in dey bachanal,but if they want you for some personal reason they will design a way to get you with the slightest loophole, and that in itself says our people needs to be engaged because I personally know how efficient they can be and most of them just need to be included and guided,the ambition and drive is there but it needs to be positively guided,they beam with pride for the simplest legitimate achievement such as an ID card or payslip,I know I hire many and many have passed through and onto other things,I run into them at times,and I have saved many even unbeknownst to me simply because they spread their positive vibes on the block and before you know it half a block walking out with their work bag on their backs at 7 am.

I tell you dynamics make all the difference,and don't get me wrong we have always had our own shit going down but the changing dynamic of the petty robbery and associated violence is an indication of the effects of the immigrant influx border breaching with guns drugs human and even animal trafficking and different crime cultures from all sides,this is simply the truth brothers and sisters,I am totally plugged into my country and all I do is give you the truth,maybe too passionately at times but this is the truth and it is from my blood my sweat my tears my joys and my disappointments,not from some distant exercise in copy and pasting.

But take it from someone who has personally been robbed and personally foiled robberies,shot a perp held and kept others for the police,I even 'arrested' an African who mugged an old lady of her phone and bag,saw her in distress got a description and made a B-line took cover and intercepted him walking around a corner,kept him at bay at gunpoint until others and police arrived,gave the lady back her possessions and left,we do not usually light up people's nationality when reporting crime but it's probably time we do it..

take it from a man that has caught men in my neighbors house and made them make amends,stop men from possibly killing a man over a petty misunderstanding by getting bigger men to tell them to cool it and reassure the guy that it was a cool scene,also rescued a whole family of ladies,my neighbors opposite from a home invasion at 1:30 am one morning in 2006 they shouted my name in desperation I couldn't ignore them,I left my bed put on my vest and ran over and fired upon them in the dark and they scampered,police came and it was no big deal I just gave them the facts and when my neighbor settled down me and wifey went back to bed,the following day I let my men reinforce her back gates etc as she bounded a ravine,I didn't have my anti-climb line at the time.


Count on me for the truth brothers and sisters because I am actively in the dynamic and my conclusions are purely based on fact and experience,count on others for honestly pushing their agenda and copy and paste.

Res ispa loquitur..

T&T now has a police response of 5 mins or less,more robbers are being caught,this would separate the goat from the sheep because T&T criminals would become wary of that and would prefer stay on the block where if you go and the opportunity presents itself they may rob you there,but we will see many more reports of foreign perps being caught,we've already seen so many in just the past weeks..


Also I am not of any political affiliation but I mus tell you the current Gov't is being very proactive and the results would be there for all to see as everything culminates into a better working machine with more efficient components,as the legal operational and practical gaps are filled crime would be stifled and culture and psyche would be positively affected.

The glass is half full in T&T,despite our obvious challenges T&T is a very special place where there are so many parallel realities that never conflict. I can also lend assistance in informing you about many other aspects of T&T such as our diverse and concentrated flora and fauna,our diverse and concentrated beautiful ladies or any other interest one may have,and my assessment and advice would've been from my own experience not some generic cut and paste exercise...

Before I go,there's an area called Sealots which in itself is on par with the hottest parts of Laventille and Beetham etc and a 5-10 min walk away from both,just a highway crossing and a lil walk,there are some warehouse businesses on the edge of area and you have to drive on their main street to go around to the warehouse area,my brothers and sisters the place is littered with men with huge gold chains and other looking all kinda tusty and to be honest very scary to the average person,the ULTIMATE black gangsta ghetto scene,I will film my drive through someday and share..

Well hear this normal everyday people of all walks of life racial make up ,nationality etc pass through there everyday from Porsches to BMWs to Benzs to Bentleys to Rolls Royces to Sunnys to Corollas pass between those people,they even stop for drinks snacks close by,people walk in and out,delivery vans deliver all the snacks,foods and drinks,rob them and pickney can't get kiss cake and chubby in de shop and tanty cyar get rice to boil if yuh brave,surely there can be the odd rogue around seizing a petty opportunity in the dark maybe to no knowledge of the bigger men in the area but that's very rare,there are strict instructions by many 'heads' that they cannot rob anyone around and if they do and you good you could make a call and get back the loot or at least some of it and an apology to the victim. wink

T&T will never be the loose cannon some of you yearn for..

Dynamics tells me many of you here on this bandwagon are 100 times more likely to be gunned down at your next visit to the nice movie theater,bowling alley, mall,concert or even your workplace or abducted and murdered by your Uber driver than me.

Not to mention the kids at school..

Keep off the fringes here,practice basic precautions as you would anywhere,don't deal in drugs,don't resist a robber ,your phone or wallet not worth a fight that may lead to your death or serious injury by some fool more scared than you both foreign or local,don't be wicked and nasty,have no stupid disputes and enjoy your movie!

Criminal activity in Trinidad and Tobago has been and still is a controversial topic on the two islands. Gang Murders and murders rose every year from 1999 to 2008. Approximately 529 people were murdered in 2008, the highest number ever. In January 2018 Trinidad recorded 40 killings in the month. Nearly 500 murders per year were recorded in 2017.

Port of Spain and its immediate environs have a higher crime rate than any other part of Trinidad.
Homicides countrywide rose from fewer than 50 in the 1980s, to 97 in 1998, then to 360 in 2006 (30 murders per 100,000 persons). It rose to approximately 529 in 2008.


Notice blame foreigners for crime, in the 1980's when murders were fewer than 50, we had no Jamaicans /Venezuelans or any foreigner in T&T.

Plus drugs and gangs weren't discovered as yet.
A long diatribe and a failed attempt to sound relevant about anything... BS.

Dunno,possibly Trinis or other yadis or a combination of both,brother they catch yadis doing crime here all the time and we don't talk about it,some of my best and favorite men are yardies..don't get me wrong but I'm just showing the dynamics here and that new report became available..

I know for a fact that Venes turning it up like no one else right now,yadis always did they lil thing long before now,but they were more into drugs and fraud,but with the increased numbers you gonna get more bad apples among men who probably now out of work etc and can't deal with that pressure,probably can't even buy a ticket to get home,but de spanish killing we,dem people bringing guns and drugs dey self in their bundles almost everyday!!

To the idiot comparing 30 years ago to now,and if the idiot didn't know even then Venes were bringing in all the guns and drugs..and committing crimes on the streets,to a lesser extent obviously..


When Reyna Cumberbatch climbed out of a boat and onto a deserted beach in the Caribbean twin-island nation of Trinidad and Tobago, she was nervous but deeply relieved.


That might not sound like a flood. But Trinidad is only slightly larger than Rhode Island and is home to just 1.3 million people. Proportionate to its population, Trinidad has received more Venezuelans than almost any other country.


Kinda like we ISIS status eh..

A few reports from the past couple weeks,and I mean weeks,there are many more months before with even more guns drugs and criminals,I also left out reports with those arrested for just being illegal immigrants..people please apply the same logic as you do so enthusiastically when comparing our size to crime,ISIS recruits etc and you would see the burdens that we carry for all,and carry so well...what you are witnessing is T&T at it's darkest time,even so the light is overwhelming despite all these outside influences,devices and invaders..another island woulda done be hitting over 50/100,000 murder rate and gangs of marauding robbers,not here,one of worst years last year and we still in the 30's/100,000,while Jamaica which had a much better year than 2017 were 47/100,000,yet Jamaica does not face a fraction of our multitude of challenges,this tells me were are putting up a damn good fight and many of you should be ashamed of your transparent and thoughtless conclusions..

We shall prevail!! Thank you..

Six gun Vene

According to reports from the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS), the 27-year-old Venezuelan man was arrested and four shotguns, two revolvers and quantities of ammunition were seized by officers of the South Western Division Task Force (SWDTF) during an anti-crime exercise conducted in the Cedros district on Thursday afternoon.



Three Venes were held with this

Southwestern Division police arrested three Venezuelan nationals for possession of a sub-machine firearm and ammunition on Saturday.


Venes arrested in early morning drug bust.

Four men and four women, some of whom are Venezuelans, were detained and are assisting police with their investigations.


Two venes jailed for armed robbery..


Two Venezue­lan men were sen­tenced to three years in prison with hard labour yes­ter­day af­ter plead­ing guilty to last week’s armed rob­bery at a Clax­ton Bay phar­ma­cy.


Two venes held with over 6 kilos

The two men, aged 26 and 38, were arrested during an exercise by officers of the North Eastern Division Task Force, and the Northern Division, between the hours of 9.30 p.m. Friday and 3 a.m. on Saturday.
