(JAMAICA OBSERVER) – A member of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) is now under investigation after he reported that a bag carrying his service pistol, his private licensed firearm and more than 60 rounds of ammunition were stolen from a room he was sleeping in.
According to police reports, last Friday, the cop, who name and rank is being withheld, went to premises in Santa Cruz, St Elizabeth with a black knapsack containing a Glock pistol which he was issued by the JCF, his personal Beretta 9mm, four magazines with a total of 67 rounds of ammunition, a wallet containing his JCF identification card, and cash.
It is reported that yesterday morning the cop woke and found that the bag had been stolen.
