Three police officers are expected to appear before an Arima Magistrate on Monday 22nd June 2020, to answer to the charges of misbehaviour in public office and robbery with aggravation.

Constables Keron George, Hendron Moses and Juvon White were charged today, Thursday 18th June 2020, by officers of the Professional Standards Bureau (PSB) following advice received from Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Roger Gaspard SC.

This after PSB officers concluded a comprehensive investigation into a report surrounding an incident in the early hours of Wednesday 13th May 2020, in which a family was relieved of TT$161,300 and US$6,500 by men who appeared to be police officers.

The three suspects were positively identified by the victims following an identification parade.

According to the victims, three men—one clad with a bullet proof vest with the word ‘POLICE’ written on the front, another in tactical clothing and another armed with a gun—showed up outside the family’s Arima residence and yelled the instruction: ‘Police, open the door!’

While one of the men pointed a firearm at one the victim, he became fearful for his life and allowed the men into the house.

The men then allegedly took the victim into a bedroom where the suspects demanded money. It is there the family was reportedly relieved of the local and US currencies.
