By Newsroom

Four suspected gang members were arrested during a police operation at St Paul Street in Laventille, which ended in the early hours of this morning.

They were arrested relative to larceny of a motor vehicle and gang-related offences, being investigated by the Special Investigations Unit (SIU).

IATF officers also assisted the investigators of the SIU to execute search warrants at the homes of the suspects.

The four men, one of them a reputed gang leader, are currently being questioned by investigators who will then approach the Director of Public Prosecution for advice on laying charges.

The operation was coordinated by the Administrative Heads of the SIU, and supervised by Ag Insp Morales, Ag Insp Baptiste and Ag Insp McGuirk.
