As the police began their crackdown on crime in east Port-of-Spain, detectives yesterday confiscated 989 kilogrammes of marijuana and arrested two suspects in Beetham Gardens. But an early morning police raid reportedly ended in bedlam, with Phase Five residents making claims of police brutality. The police deny using brute force.
