December 06, 2017


A district constable, who was attached to the Detention and Courts Division, has been arrested and charged with possession of ganja and introducing contraband into a penal institution last Saturday.

He is 57-year-old Dale Edwards, who was assigned to the Horizon Remand Centre on Spanish Town Road, Kingston 14.

Reports from the Denham Town police are that at about 9:35 a.m., Edwards was in the process of entering a cell when he was stopped and searched by a correctional officer. Closer examination revealed one parcel of ganja wrapped with masking tape hidden inside the boot he was wearing.

He was subsequently arrested and charged by a team of officers assigned to the Kingston Western Police Division.

He is scheduled to appear before the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Thursday, December 14.
