Over $10,000 missing

Authorities are investigating the circumstances under which US$5,500 has gone missing from District “D” Police Station.

Barbados TODAY understands that sum was part of approximately $100,000 which was being kept at the station as an exhibit in a money laundering case.

The probe has already led to the sudden resignation of a station sergeant who at one time was in charge of the rural station and responsible for the proper maintenance of all exhibits.

But even as those close to the investigation query why such a large sum was kept at the station and not sent to the Police Force’s principal exhibit keeper at Central Police Station, Barbados TODAY has been reliably informed that there was the possibility that investigators could recommend criminal charges if such supportive evidence was forthcoming.

When contacted police public relations officer acting assistant superintendent David Welch said he had no information on the matter at this stage.

    When police stealing drugs from drug dealers and selling it back on the streets then stealing money from station, gives the public every reason to show a lack of respect towards the force… Barbados is so ripe for a riot!!!!

    Last week our students took to the streets against drugs. It was a sad day to notice the very little support they received especially from this comment box. If we remain silent on such issues our society would be left in dire straits.

    That is what happens when you put Cheese in front of a Hungry Cat.
    I the Stn.Sgt. who suddenly resigned was the only person with access to those Funds, he should at LEAST be brought in for Questioning, and if something is not done ASAP he will show up in Brooklyn and be out of reach of the Arm of our Law. so much for that, perhaps that is what is intended to happen anyway.
    it’s called closing Ranks, and it happens everywhere. His paasport should be seized by Court order (Judge or JP) as a MATERIAL WITNESS in the Investigation.
    and the system of evidence retention has to be improves considerably.
    all evidence should be taken to Central station and LOGGED in on the same day as it was confiscated from the Perps. It should only be logged out and signed for when it is required at Court, and returned immediately after Court is finished with it.
