Cops in agouti ‘sting’ released
Two policemen who allegedly took an agouti and $3,000 as a bribe have been released as investigations continue. The constable and acting corporal who were held last Thursday were allowed to leave the Chaguanas Police Station on Friday without being charged. A senior officer said they were released on advice from the police legal team.
However, investigators are expected to meet with the Director of Public Prosecutions today. According to reports, a motorist was caught driving without insurance during an exercise conducted by officers of the Longdenville police post last Wednesday. Police said the motorist was warned but allowed to leave.
It is alleged that two officers went to the motorist’s home where they arrested him and the owner of the car. The men were taken to the police station where they were allegedly asked for $7,000. Eventually, the agouti meat and $3,000 were handed over. A team of officers, led by Inspector Wayne Lawrence of the Chaguanas CID, subsequently arrested the two police officers. Investigations are continuing.
