A Nigerian that his identity was not made public has been arrested in Trinidad and Tobago for smuggling cocaine.



According to police reports, on January 13th at around 2.15 pm officers attached to the Marabella Criminal Investigation Department (CID), as a result of information received, proceeded to TTPost, Coffee Street San Fernando, where they detained the 40-year-old man, a Nigerian National, residing at Rueben Lane Enterprise, Chaguanas.

The suspect reportedly attempted to export a quantity of cocaine to India and Thailand, which were hidden among several fishing reels in several envelopes.

Officers from the said unit under the supervision of Sgt Wilkinson of the San Fernando Operations Unit executed a search warrant around 4.20 pm at the man’s Enterprise address, where they recovered 446 grammes of cocaine.

The quantity of cocaine along with the 40-year-old man were then taken to the Marabella CID office.

He is expected to appear in a virtual hearing before a San Fernando magistrate this week
