KINGSTON, Jamaica — Two police officers accused of kidnapping the spouse of a man from whom they allegedly attempted to solicit money were offered bail in the sum of $600,000 each when they appeared in the Trelawny Parish Court yesterday.
The two officers, Corporal Roger Davis and Constable Ricardo Foster, were alleged to have posed as officers from the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) when they stopped and forcibly took the complainant from his motor vehicle and solicited $2 million to which he agreed.
He later managed to escape after they took him to his house to collect the money.
The policemen then took the complainant’s spouse from the house to Falmouth, Trelawny. When their demands for money was not met they released her along the roadway.
A report was subsequently made to the MOCA-West office, resulting in the arrest and charge of the two policemen.
Both were charged last Friday by detectives from MOCA – West for kidnapping and breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act.
They will return to court on Thursday, September 7.
