A Port-of-Spain man was arrested for possession of marijuana over the legal limit of 30 grammes.

At about 6.32 pm on Wednesday, the man was held by police who searched him and found 67.9 grammes of marijuana in his possession. The suspect, who is from Picton Street, was held within 500 meters of the Bishops Centenary School, so he also faces the more serious charge of marijuana possession for the purposes of trafficking.

PC Marcial is continuing inquiries.
