Man wanted for two murders nabbed in maxi taxi

NALINEE SEELAL Tuesday, April 18 2017

A 29-year-old Wallerfield man, wanted for two murders which occurred in Arouca in September last year, was arrested as he travelled in a red band maxi taxi along the Priority Bus Route last Friday.

Director of Public Prosecutions Roger Gaspard SC has given instructions for the man to be charged with the murders and he is expected to appear before an Arima magistrate today.

According to police, the man was being sought by officers of the Northern Division and the Homicide Bureau but he managed to evade arrest.

An off duty police officer from the Northern Division saw the suspect entering the maxi taxi near Arima and used his private vehicle to follow.

The officer alerted his colleagues from the Northern Division Task Force intercepted the vehicle.

The man was arrested and handed over to officers of the Region Two Homicide Bureau.

The man’s Wallerfield home was searched and a 9mm pistol with several rounds of ammunition were allegedly found. The weapon has been sent to the Forensic Science Centre for ballistic testing.

The officer was commended by acting Commissioner Stephen Williams. Head of the Northern Division, Mac Donald Jacob also heaped praise on the officer and called on other officers to demonstrate the same level of commitment to duty as the constable.
