Cops led to stolen vehicles and parts

According to a police report, at about 5.30 pm, officers PCs Marcano and Rambarran were in pursuit of a man wanted by the police.

He ran into an apartment at Lion’s Drive in a bid to escape the officers.

However, the police gave chase and held him in the apartment.

During a search of the premises the officers found hundreds of vehicle parts. The officers also found a Toyota Altis and a Navarra, both reportedly stolen. Police said the vehicles were in the process of being ‘‘disguised’’, meaning the registration numbers were being changed along with other numbers in the vehicle and trademarks.

A party of senior officers including Supt Johnny Abraham and Sgt Jerry Hosein visited the scene and carried out further enquiries.

The stolen vehicle parts and the vehicles were impounded at the Freeport Police Station.

Members of the public who have had their respective vehicles stolen have been asked to visit the Freeport Police Station to identify the parts, which include: fenders, engines, transmissions, gear boxes, tyres, park lights, head lights and rims.

Investigators believe that the location they raided was a reception spot for stolen vehicles.
