Commissioner of Police, Gary Griffith says an investigation is underway into a report that electoral polling cards were found at Pinto Road, Arima, on Wednesday.

At around 6:25 pm on Wednesday 12th August 2020, a Minister of Religion and a former Member of Parliament, received information from an anonymous caller and proceeded to a bushy area at Mottley Trace # 2 Pinto Road, Arima, accompanied by a friend. While there he observed a quantity of electoral polling cards in the said bushy area and reported the discovery to the police.

WPC Smith and PC D’Abreau of the Pinto Police Post responded to the report and cordoned off the area. The scene was processed by WPC Edghill- Marcano and a team from the Northern Division Crime Scene Investigators.

The polling cards were packaged into four small brown paper evidence bags and handed over to Insp (Ag) Ward who is continuing enquiries.

The operation was coordinated by Supt Edwards and was supervised by Insp. Birch, Ag. Insp. Ward, and W/Sgt Robinson-Mottley.
