PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad and Tobago, October 31, 2018 (CMC) – A 48-year-old police officer is due to return to court, in January next year, after he was released on TT$200,000 bail, on a charge of stealing six panties from the US-owned PriceSmart in Chaguanas, south of here.
Sergeant Rauff Hosein, 48, pleaded not guilty to the charge of larceny when he appeared before Magistrate Adrian Darmanie in the Chaguanas, yesterday.
