REAL NEWS: A police corporal has found himself in hot water after items stolen from his uncle’s plantation were found on his premises and on a vacant property next to his home.
According to reports, the uncle, the owner of a cultivation located in Bethesda, went to the Dockyard Police Station and reported that a number of tractor extensions; one banker; one digger; and one plough had been stolen from his farm between March and September 26.
Reportedly, the farmer had been missing the extensions for some time; but on Tuesday, September 26, it is alleged that he saw the stolen items on his nephew’s Christian Hill property.
A source says the man observed that his banker was attached to the rear of a red-and-white tractor on the eastern driveway of the alleged offender’s property.
The other two items – the digger and the plough – had been placed on a vacant plot east of the corporal’s home, the source says.
At the time the report was made, the officers conducting the inquiry reportedly made several attempts to contact the policeman in question, but without success.
However, a search warrant was obtained later and executed at the corporal’s home. In his presence, the Police found the banker, digger and plough.
The source could not confirm whether the officer has been detained for questioning.
