A Special Reserve police officer appeared in court earlier this month charged with stealing $500 from the property room at the Besson Street Police Station.

PC Hebron Ryan, 25, of Jackson Street, Curepe, was granted $20,000 bail by Magistrate Cheron Raphael, presiding in the Port-of-Spain 11th Magistrates’Court. He was charged with misbehaviour in public office and larceny of $500.

The accused, who was attached to the Besson Street Police Station, was arrested by PC Ralph Rampersad, of the Professional Standards Bureau, on March 12, following investigations into the disappearance of $500, from the property room of the Station, on October 12, 2017. The officer had five years’ service.

CCTV footage recorded a man entering the property room and removing a quantity of money from the exhibit cabinet, before placing it in his boots and leaving.

Since the incident, PC Ryan had failed to report for duty and attempts to communicate with him had proven futile.
