Four persons were arrested and several market items seized after Port-of-Spain City Police cracked down on illegal street vending.
All four were charged with offering for sale marketable commodities, wilful obstruction and unlawful pitch of a stall, offences which are contrary to the Municipal Corporations Act.
According to police reports, the make-shift stalls containing the assorted marketable commodities were seized, documented and examined by officers of the public health department. The individuals are expected to appear before a Port-of-Spain Magistrate next week. The exercise was conducted along Charlotte, Henry, Frederick and Queen Janelle Commissiong Streets, Broadway and the Brian Lara Promenade, Independence Square.
