A special reserve police officer will appear in court this morning for allegedly stealing jewelry from a colleague.
Reports indicate that a police officer took off his jewelry and left it at the Police Barracks in St James but when he returned he observed his gold chain and ring, valued at $7,000, were missing.
A report was made to the St Clair Police Station.
Investigations by Senior Superintendent Ajith Persad and Inspector Mark Maharaj lead officers to a pawnshop in Port-of-Spain where officers recovered the officer’s gold chain only.
However, further investigations resulted in the subsequent arrest of a special reserve officer with seven years' service.
The SRP was charged over the weekend and is expected to appear before a Port-of-Spain magistrate today.
