St James, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – Three St James Police Facing Corruption Charges: Our news team has been informed by the police that the three Police Constables who are attached to the St James Operations Department and who were recently charged with corruption are booked to appear in the St James Parish Court this week where they will answer to charges of Breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act.

All three officers who are presently being held at the Falmouth lockup in Trelawny have been identified as Constables Airlock Thompson, David Willis and Andre Hamilton. Reports are that over a week ago all three officers were on operation duties at a section of Ironshore in Montego Bay.

The officers went to a house occupied by the complainant.  It is further reported that following a search of the premises, the lawmen stumbled upon a large quantity of ganja and allegedly made arrangements with the complainant to pay a certain amount of cash in order not to arrest him.

It is further alleged that all three officers were paid cash amounting to Jamaican $60,000 and an undetermined sum of US and Canadian currency.  The complainant allegedly complied but the deal went sour after it is alleged that the cops demanded more money.

The complainant later reported the matter to officers at the Major Organized Crime Unit and following an investigation one of the officer was found in possession of US and Canadian currency which is believed to be part of the alleged corruption money paid out.

All three officers were then taken into custody at the Freeport Station and later slapped with the corruption charges.
