A 32-year-old Sangre Grande woman has been arrested for stealing a gun and ammunition from a security officer at a casino.
The incident is said to have taken place at a gambling establishment in the Sangre Grande area after midnight.
The officer reported to police that he was on duty at the casino, armed with the weapon, when he went to the washroom and placed it on the toilet tank.
Minutes after leaving the washroom, he realised he had left the gun behind and returned to retrieve it, but did not find it.
A report was immediately made to the police and investigations resulted in the woman being arrested and the weapon and ammo being discovered hidden in some bushes behind her house.
