Seven St James cops are now in custody after being taken in by members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force’s Anti-Corruption Branch for Reasonable Suspicion of Breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act.

Reports are that on Wednesday, November 20, 2013 between the hours of noon and 2 p.m., it is alleged that the officers visited the home of a local businessman in the parish, where they conducted a search and a quantity of ganja was found.

The officers are suspected to have then solicited $300,000 from the man so that charges would not be preferred against him.

He allegedly withdrew a sum of money and gave it to them.

The Anti-Corruption Branch was contacted, a report made and the Policemen were taken into custody pending an Identification Parade.
