Five men have been arrested and charged for attempting to steal a kayak valued at $2,300.
The suspects are all between the ages of 20 and 24.
Around 5 am on December 16th, a security officer tasked with guarding kayaking equipment in Matura heard a loud noise coming from the building.
Upon checking the area, he saw five men removing a kayak from the building.
The men dropped the object and attempted to escape in a nearby vehicle, but they were intercepted and held by officers of the Sangre Grande Station.
They have since been charged with warehouse breaking and larceny.
