Police sergeant Glenford Campbell has been convicted in the Yallahs Resident Magistrate's court on corruption charges.

He is to be sentenced on June 17.

On November 2, 2011, Campbell, who was attached to the Cedar Valley Police Station in St Thomas, was charged with four counts of breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act.

The sergeant was on patrol duty in Cedar Valley on October 29, 2011, when he cited a motorist for breaches of the Road Traffic Act. 

He then corruptly solicited and accepted an undetermined sum of money in order not to prosecute him.

A report was made to the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency and Campbell was arrested and charged.

Today, he was convicted on one count of soliciting and two counts of accepting money in a corrupt manner.
