Bullet riddled body found

Monday, January 15, 2018

The bullet riddled body of a URP worker was found by police in Fyzabad on Saturday night.

Acting on an anonymous tip off called in to the Fyzabad Police Station at around 11 pm, officers went to Gowers Well Road where they found the body of Andre Sydney, a father of one.

Investigators suspect his death to be drug related but Sydney’s neighbours at Pond Street, La Romaine, said they did not know him to be involved in drugs. One resident said Sydney was originally from Fyzabad and moved into the area with his siblings after his grandparents died. No one was at the victim’s home when the T&T Guardian visited yesterday.

Investigations are continuing.

In another incident, at around 9.30 pm on Saturday, a senior fire officer was at his home in Mon Repos when two men entered and announced a hold up. The intruders stole a quantity of cash and jewelry and beat the 54-year-old officer about his head and body. He is warded at the San Fernando General Hospital in stable condition.

PC Bicano is investigating.
