Reports are a Caribbean Airlines flight in transit from New York to Guyana arrived at Piarco International Airport last Wednesday to offload cargo. On Thursday, Trinidad and Tobago Police Service officers received a report from authorities in Guyana that nine cellphones were missing, however.
Among the missing phones were the high-end Samsung Galaxy S6 and Apple iPhones. Sgt Joseph of the Arouca Criminal Investigation Department led a team of detectives to the airport.
Four male employees of Swissport, aged 23 to 26, and a 44-year-old female, who is said to be a lecturer at the Trinidad and Tobago Training Academy, were arrested as a result of those investigations.
Seven of the stolen cellphones were recovered. A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a sixth suspect. Investigations are continuing.
