(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) – Two police constables are being accused of arresting a man, taking him to the police station, and robbing him of $21.
And investigators say the alleged crime was caught on the surveillance cameras at the police station.
Officers of the Professional Standards Bureau used the footage as part of their evidence when they went to the Director of Public Prosecutions Roger Gaspard on Thursday afternoon.
The officers are expected to appear in the Port of Spain Magistrates’ Court on Friday charged with robbery and misbehavior in public office.
The Express was told that on Monday, the two officers attached to the Western Division arrested a man for the possession of marijuana. They took him to a police station in the district and found $21 in his pocket, which they took before processing and charging the man.
The man reported the alleged theft and the Professional Standards Bureau got involved. The officers were pointed out in an Identification parade on Wednesday.
