Two Cops Charged with Extortion at Check Point!

Chester Williams

Two more cops are in hot water – unlike the cop in San Pedro they were criminally charged and arraigned and have already been placed on interdiction. Commissioner of Police Chester Williams says that last week two cops at a check point extorted a man for two hundred dollars when he couldn’t produce his driver’s license. Commissioner Williams has the details.

“This happened last week in Belize City where a young man reported that he was driving on the George Price Highway and when reaching the mile four check point he was stopped by two police officers who were working there. He didn’t have his driver’s license with him. He was asked to produce it and he couldn’t and based on that the officers extorted two hundred dollars from him. He called me as it occurred. I got professional standard branch in the picture and that led to the arrest of two police officers; WPC Anthony and PC Sambula. They were charged with extortion. They went to court last week and received bail and are now on interdiction.”
