Diego Martin Couple Among Three Held for Gun, Ammo and Narcotics.
Three people were arrested after police allegedly found a gun, ammunition and a lot of narcotics during two crime-fighting exercises in West Trinidad this morning.
Diego Martin’s married couple are among those in police custody.
At 2:30 a.m., Western Division Task Force (WDTF) officers went to Main Street in Cocorite, where they issued a search warrant. The officers found and allegedly confiscated an SCCY pistol, ten rounds of nine-millimeter ammunition and 424 grams of marijuana.
A 31-year-old man and his 42-year-old common law wife, who were home at the time of the search, were subsequently arrested in connection with the find.
In the second incident, the same officers went to St. Lucien Road, Diego Martin, where a 29-year-old male suspect was located, and where they issued a search warrant.
During the search, officers allegedly found and confiscated 720.5 grams of marijuana and 0.5 grams of cocaine.
The man was arrested immediately.
Both incidents are currently being investigated.
