The case against Constable Kaye Falconer, one of three police officers on trial in relation to the reported unlawful release of a prisoner from the Montego Bay lock-up in 2013, is set to continue in the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate’s Court on July 24.

Constable Falconer, who is charged with harbouring a fugitive, had her bail extended.

The allegations against Falconer are that on February 24, 2013 then fugitive Greg Taylor was reportedly found at her home.

He was reportedly found hiding under a table at the time of his capture by a police team.

Taylor was held after he had reportedly been released from police custody under questionable circumstances on January 30, 2013.

Constables Raymond Johnson and Alicia Hutchinson-Brooks, the other two officers implicated in Taylor’s alleged unlawful release, are being tried separately on corruption charges.

They will make their next court appearance on July 31.
