Three cops charged with corruption

KINGSTON — Three members of the constabulary were Saturday charged with breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act.

The Anti-Corruption Branch said yesterday that Special Corporal Tyrone Harvey, Constable Lamore Small and Woman Constable Grace-Ann Williams, all stationed in the St. Catherine South Division, were earlier this year placed under investigation for their alleged breach of the Corruption Prevention Act.

According to the ACB, the three were on patrol early one morning when they accosted a motorist who was parked along the roadway and accused him of being involved in wrongdoing. They then requested money from him. A portion of the money was paid over to them and an arrangement was made for the balance to be paid the following day.

Following a report to the ACB, and its subsequent investigation, a file was submitted to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, which ruled that they be charged for corruptly soliciting and accepting money.

They are scheduled to appear before the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate’s Court tomorrow. (Observer)
