PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC – A policewoman is among three people charged with gun trafficking following the discovery of a firearm with ammunition and a silencer at their house.

She will reappear in court on April 23, along with co-accused Cindy Gonzales, who was granted bail in the sum of TT$20,000 with surety or TT$5,000 cash bail.
