Police Officers Arrested For Corruption

A constable  and a police sergeant from the Area One police division were arrested along with a businessman during a sting operation carried out by the Anti-Corruption branch in Savanna-la-Mar, Westmoreland yesterday.

Reports from the police are that the businessman became enraged over a transaction between himself and a contractor  and then plotted with the sergeant and the constable to extort money.

A report was later made by the Contractor to police officials after an undisclosed sum of cash was demanded.

A sting operation was launched by The Anti-Corruption Branch resulting in  the three men being taken into custody.

  

The identities of the men involved have not yet been revealed pending the results of  further investigations.
