Stolen car recovered thanks to GPS

Stolen car recovered thanks to GPS

Three people are in custody after they were held with a stolen vehicle.

The suspects were held by officers of the North Eastern Division Task Force on Monday afternoon.

Earlier that day, police received a report that a white Nissan AD Wagon had been stolen from the home of a 46-year-old taxi-driver at Sixth Street, Barataria.

Unbeknownst to the thieves, however, the vehicle had been outfitted with GPS.

This led investigators to trace the vehicle and recover it in the yard of a home in Cunupia.

At the time of the seizure, three men were at the home.

They have all been detained as police determine whether charges of larceny or being in possession of stolen property, will be levied against the trio.

Cpl Maynard is continuing inquiries.

In a similar incident, a white Honda City car, which had been reported stolen at gunpoint on Monday night in Barataria, was recovered in the Port of Spain district.

The victim, was a 69-year-old woman from Sixth Street, Barataria, and she was held up at gunpoint in the driveway of her home.

PC Abdul Latif is continuing inquiries into this matter.

More on this as it becomes available.
