Two suspects, ages 17 and 18, were arrested by officers of the Couva Criminal Investigation Department (CID) for larceny of fish.
According to police reports, a fisherman reported that he returned from a fishing trip from in the Orange Valley area at 8 am on January 19th.
He iced 250 pounds of fish, secured and stored it in an ice bin on his boat, and left. He returned later in the day and noticed that the fish was missing.
Officers of the Couva Criminal Investigation Department began an inquiry into the matter. Sometime later, two suspects of Bay Road Extension, Orange Valley, walked into the Couva Police Station and surrendered. After the investigations were completed the two suspects were arrested and charged for larceny of the 250 pounds of fish. They are both expected to appear virtually at the Couva Magistrates’ Court today to answer to the charges.
