WASA confirms arrest of person at Laventille facility

The Water and Sewerage Authority has issued an official statement on an incident involving the arrest of an individual at its facilities in Laventille, earlier today.

The full text of the statement, follows…


The Water and Sewerage Authority (the Authority) confirms that an individual attached to one of its Contractors, was arrested by the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS), upon entry to one of the Authority’s facilities in Laventille, today—Thursday 23rd April, 2020.

We understand that the individual (not an employee of the Authority) at the time was found to be in possession of a firearm and ammunition. He was taken into custody by the attending Police Officers and the matter is now under investigation by the TTPS.

The Authority thanks the TTPS for its swift action and underscores that it in no way condones any activity being conducted at any of its facilities, which is likely to threaten the safety of its employees or anyone conducting legitimate business.
