Female Lance Corporal under open arrest after Police Probe discovers firearm license fraud – 15th Jan 2013
A female Lance Corporal is at the center of a police probe, following the discovery of an alleged fraud in the sale of firearm licences in the Police ‘A’ Division Registry Section.
The Rank is now under open arrest as the investigations continue, according to a police press statement today. Open arrest simply means, she has not been detained and is not entitled to be off duty or on leave until the matter is resolved.
Reports suggest that the “A” Division Registry Officer allegedly hid two books of licenses which also serve as receipts.
It is believed that the Officer may have sold the licenses from the books but did not hand over the money.
The case is being handled by the Audit and Inspection Unit of the Police Office of Professional Responsibility along with the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
