This is what what said they found at the house in Couva.

Three men and a Venezuelan woman were arrested on suspicion of committing forgery offences by officers of the Central Division Task Force and Couva Criminal Investigations Department, on Thursday.

The suspects; a 44-year-old Princes Town man, a 32-year-old Couva man, a 29-year-old San Fernando man and a 19-year-old Venezuelan woman, were arrested at a house along Hamelia Drive, Roystonia, Couva.

While responding to a report of an intruder at a house along Hamelia Drive, officers had cause to enter the 32-year-old suspect’s Roystonia home.

There, they observed three other suspects with a quantity of cash, a number of deeds in various persons’ names for several property addresses and machinery to aid in the printing of said deeds. The officers also found machinery to aid in the printing of fraudulent Trinidad and Tobago drivers’ permits, identification cards and passports.
