A Corporal attached to the Trinidad and Tobago Regiment is currently in police custody for possession of ammunition after he was arrested by officers of the Morvant Police Station.
Officers of the Morvant Police Station were responding to a report of a domestic disturbance at a house along Pelican Extension Road, Morvant, around 4:05 pm, on Thursday 17th May, 2018, when they had cause to arrest the soldier.
While at the scene of the dispute, officers received information which led them to conduct a search of the laundry room of the house.
The search resulted in officers discovering 10 rounds of 9mm ammunition hidden in one side of an army issued black combat boot.
The soldier, who was in the house at the time of the search, was subsequently arrested in connection with the find and conveyed to the Morvant Police Station.
Cpl Darryl LaPierre is continuing enquiries.
