Cop in court on $11,000 larceny charge
A police officer who allegedly sold his car twice to two different people has appeared in court charged with larceny of $11,000, allegedly committed three years ago. PC Dudley Hills, 54, of Chase Village, Chaguanas, appeared before magistrate Gail Gonsalves in the Chaguanas court on Thursday.
He was arrested by Cpl Marvin Francis of the Fraud Squad and charged with larceny of $11,000 from Couva resident Don Jordan on May 9, 2009. Police prosecutor acting Insp Joey Samaroo did not object to bail. Hills, who was represented by attorney Joseph Honore, was placed on $25,000 bail.
The officer, who was last assigned to Port-of-Spain Traffic Branch, is on pre-retirement leave. He will reappear in court on May 9. The prosecution claimed he sold his car to Jordan in May 2009. However, Jordan did not come to collect the car and in August of that year, the car was sold to someone else.
