A young female police traffic rank landed in hot water when the person to whom she took her stolen booty to sell turned back and exposed her. The rank was placed under close arrest after the jewellery she reportedly stole from a male colleague was handed over to a senior police officer even as she was being investigated for the theft.
This newspaper understands that the young Constable who was stationed at the Brickdam Traffic Office removed $1M in gold jewellery from the car of a Police Sergeant while it was parked in the ‘A’ Division Headquarters compound on Tuesday.
The jewellery consisted of a band, ring and chain, all made out of gold.
According to a source at the Brickdam Police Station, the Sergeant and the Constable shared a close working relationship and some amount of trust had developed between them. So when the Sergeant missed his jewellery which he had left in his car, his attention immediately turned to the Constable who had access to his vehicle.
However, when questioned, the Constable denied removing the articles and the matter was reported, prompting an intense investigation.
The source said that by this time the Constable had taken the stolen items to a contact in Plaisance.
Meanwhile, investigators during the course of their probe visited the Constable’s home on the East Coast of Demerara where they carried out a search.
Word of the search reached the ears of the contact and sensing that he was handling “trouble”, the contact contacted a senior police officer and handed over the stolen property to him. Of course he disclosed who gave it to him.
Faced with the evidence, the Constable had no other choice but to admit to her actions and she was promptly placed under close arrest.
