Three more police held for trafficking in Venezuelan minors


    Four persons, including three Central Division police officers, were arrested early today on suspicion of being gang members as well as trafficking in persons.

    They are being questioned about the trafficking of persons, mainly minors, from Venezuela.

    Their homes and the lockers of the policemen were searched and among the items seized were cell phones.

    During the exercise, one of the police officers complained of chest pains and was taken to hospital.

    Theses arrests follow a similar exercise on February 10th, 2020, where one policeman and a Venezuelan were arrested and later charged.
