Cop arrested on suspicion of burglary and housebreaking
The St Ann police say they believe they have cracked the case of a series of break-ins in the parish with the arrest of one of their colleagues.
The police constable, who is attached to St Catherine, is now behind bars in St Ann on suspicion of burglary and housebreaking.
Superintendent Wayne Cameron, who is in charge of St Ann, says the constable was held on Monday on suspicion of breaking into houses in Richmond, St Ann and in Linstead, St Catherine, where he resides.
Today, one of the victims positively identified stolen goods that were allegedly found in the policeman’s possession.
Superintendent Cameron says the arrest of the cop will assist in reducing some of the break-ins in the parish.
St Ann has seen a drastic reduction in the number of break-ins for 2015, compared to 2014.
In 2014 there were 192 reported cases, compared to 125 up to December 20 this year.
