Family of 7 held over $230,000 in stolen goods
Seven members of a Chaguanas family were arrested yesterday after police recovered more than $230,000 worth of stolen items. Those held included a 47-year-old woman, her husband and her son, 17. Police said after investigations they went to a house at Chase Village on Monday in search of stolen items.
They said while searching the house they found two laptop computers, three flash drives and four cellphones. The police said they examined the drives and computers and were able to determine where other stolen items were being kept. They then went to a house at Longdenville yesterday.
There they found more stolen items, which included a music mixer, a graphic equaliser, a Nintendo X Box Game Console, two laptops, five cellphones and a wireless router. They also found a toy rifle which they believe had been used to commit robberies.
They also seized one round of .56 ammunition. No guns were found. Two of the stolen items were identified by their owners. The suspects are expected to appear in the Couva Magistrates’ Court today.
