The Manchester Police are now on the hunt for an ex-cop wanted for several break-ins in the parish.

According to the police, fingerprints taken from crime scenes match those of Garnett Dixon also known as 'Pollo'.

Dixon had to leave the force because of mental issues.

Meanwhile, the Commanding Officer for the Manchester Police, Superintendent Wayne Cameron says break-ins in Manchester are organised crime with some of the players posing as legitimate business operators.

Only recently, the police arrested and charged the owner of a pawn shop, Glenrick Davis also known as 'Bashment', for receiving stolen property including furniture and appliances.

Davis along with his common law wife, Georgia Taylor, have also been charged under the Customs Regulation Act, after 22 cases of fake white overproof rum were found at another establishment he owns in Porus. 

Superintendent Cameron says two other men, Najee and Lennon Holmes, have been charged jointly with Davis for break-ins and unlawful possession of property.

Cameron also revealed that among the items being stolen in the parish are licensed firearms.

He said a total of seven firearms have been stolen from homes since the start of the year.

The commanding officer added that two owners of the firearms have since been charged for negligence.
