Criminal Charges to be Laid Against Cops in Connection with Robbery of Hellshire Couple

Criminal charges are to be laid against two of four policemen who were taken into custody a few days ago in connection with the robbery of an elderly couple in Hellshire, St. Catherine.

Nationwide News understands that the two policemen were pointed out in an identification parade yesterday. It’s expected the policemen will be questioned later this week in the presence of their attorney, Peter Champagnie, then charged.

A review of the case against the remaining two policemen is reportedly being conducted. All four remain in custody this afternoon.

The policemen were arrested earlier this week by detectives at the Major Organized Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency, MOCA.

The arrests took place after a report was made to the Hellshire Police that the home of an elderly couple in the area was broken into.

The couple reported that they went overseas and on their return they discovered that thieves had stolen 17-million dollars worth of jewellery and other items from their home.

Further reports are that three days later men who allegedly identified themselves as police personnel, turned up at the couple’s house, claiming they were there to collect additional information about the robbery.

Allegations are the couple was again robbed by the implicated policemen of 5-thousand US dollars and other items.
