Investigating ranks probing one of their senior colleague’s involvement in a $6M cocaine deal has come up empty handed.
According to information received, in December last, the Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) made arrangements with two “small time” drug dealers for the purchase of $6M in cocaine. The cop was said to be the middleman and the cash reportedly belonged to Surinamese.
However, when the drug dealers could not come up with the requested quantity of cocaine, they made a plan to rob the cop—not realizing he was a member of the Guyana Police Force. It was the suspects’ confession that landed the senior cop in hot water.
This morning, a source said that investigators interviewed all the parties involved and revisited the crime scene. The file was sent for advice and further investigation was recommended due to missing information.
However, this news agency has been informed that no one has picked up the file since that time. The fingered rank is stationed at Eve Leary, Georgetown.
The source had indicated that from the inception, there was no solid evidence to charge the cop. “We have a lot of information on the (drug) deal but it’s just information, no evidence. It’s a lot of hearsay.”
The suspects behind the robbery have since been charged. The cop was reportedly robbed of his firearm, jewellery and $6M in cash but he managed to track down one of the suspects and retrieve all the cash and gold jewels.
The Guyana Standard has been informed that the policeman reported to his colleague that he was robbed but did not reveal all the details of the incident. He did not mention the cash that was taken from him.
