T&T: South police threatened

More police stations in south Trinidad have been put on high alert, Assistant Commissioner of Police (South) Dennis Graham has said.

Security measures at southern police stations were increased after two anonymous telephone calls that the southern police headquarters and the Marabella Police Station would be bombed.

In an interview on Friday, Graham said all police stations close to the roadway, including those in Princes Town, St Mary’s and Penal, were now being monitored.

He said barriers would be kept up at the three high-risk stations, the San Fernando headquarters and the Marabella and Mon Repos Police Stations.

Graham said last week that an anonymous caller threatened to blow up the San Fernando and Marabella Police Stations, using hand grenades.

He said the threats came exactly a week after the abandoned Gasparillo Police Station was burnt to the ground.
