Heightened security in the capital city since midnight is expected to impact thousands of people today, as one of the main streets leading into downtown Port-of-Spain, Trinidad will be cordoned off to facilitate two high-profile criminal cases.

Police are advising mo­torists to avoid St. Vincent Street completely and find alternative routes such as Dundonald Street, onto Richmond Street or use the Queen’s Park West exit onto Frederick Street.

High-level national security sources said security in and around the Port-of-Spain Magistrates’ Court is expected to be on its highest alert today as Four people arrested in connection with a $15 million drug bust in the upscale residential district of Westmoorings on Tuesday are due to appear in the Port-of-Spain Magistrates’ Court today charged for possession of illegal drugs, cocaine and marijuana with the intent to traffic.

This event will clash with the ongoing criminal case involving a group of men charged with the murder of former Independent Senator Dana Seetahal, as the main witness returns to the witness stand.
