Praedial Larceny Squad combats the illegal conveyance of agricultural produce and livestock in farming communities!

16 April, 2021

Praedial Larceny Squad combats the illegal conveyance of agricultural produce and livestock in farming communities!

A total of twenty-one (21) farmers and fourteen (14) vendors were interviewed by members of the Praedial Larceny Squad (PLS) of the Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries, in a joint patrol and road check exercise which took place on Thursday 15th April, 2021, in the Carlsen Field and Freeport areas.

The exercise, aimed at targeting persons who may have been conveying agricultural produce and livestock in the absence of a farmer’s / vendor’s card or a memorandum of sale / delivery, was conducted in conjucnction with the Trinidad and Tobago Municipal Police Service and the State Lands Unit of the Estate Management and Business Development Company Limited (EMBD). These two (2) latter entities treated more specifically with traffic offences and State land issues, respectively, as they arose in the conduct of their stop and search checks along the following three (3) intersections:-

i. Yaraba Road and Connector Road Junction;
ii. Thompson Road and Caparo Valley Brasso Road Junction; and
iii. Arena Road and La Cuesa Road Junction.

In addition to generating some forty-one (41) stop and search forms and issuing tickets for various traffic offences, yesterday’s three (3)-hour exercise was a clear demonstration of the effectiveness of strategic collaborations amongst the protective services and State agencies.
