Policeman pleads guilty to 2013 liquor store robbery
A Kingston policeman yesterday pleaded guilty to robbery with aggravation, when he appeared in the Half-Way Tree Resident Magistrate’s Court.
He is to be sentenced on October 6.
Another man linked to the case remains in police custody.
It is reported that on July 29 last year, Constable Patrick Ingram and the man went to a liquor store located in Harbour View in Kingston.
Both men reportedly identified themselves as police officers and then robbed the establishment of more than $300,000 in cash and of eight cartons of cigarettes.
The police were summoned and Constable Ingram and the man were nabbed as he returned to the scene of the crime for a police radio that was left behind.
The police say checks revealed that Constable Ingram’s accomplice was not a policeman.
