Woman claims ... COPS STOLE MY TABLET
Chad Bryan, Star Writer

A woman is claiming that the police stole her daughter's tablet computer after they came to process the scene of a murder that took place along King Street in Kingston on Sunday.

In the allegations made by the woman, she claims that she was asked by the cops to leave a crime scene where she had her tablet. When she returned, she claims the device had disappeared.

The incident occurred on Sunday after a 20-year-old man, identified as Patrick Nembhard, otherwise called 'Alex', of a King Street, Kingston, died as a result of gunshot wounds he received along King Street.

It is reported that about 8:15 p.m., Nembhard was sitting among a group of friends in his community when two men armed with guns approached them. The two men opened fire at the group before they escaped.

Nembhard was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

According to the woman, police investigators told her and other persons at the establishment in which the shooting took place to vacate the premises in order for the scene to be processed.

She said the police and her boyfriend were the only ones left at the location.

It was while she had vacated the premises that the woman said she remembered that her daughter's tablet computer was left inside the building.

"The police were quick on the scene. They put up the yellow tape and they told us to stay behind it. When they were finished, I went straight to where I left the tablet because I know it was in there. I said Lord God, mi forget to take up the tablet but people were saying that it gone," she said.

She also revealed that it was a little over two weeks after her daughter's father had sent the tablet that it was stolen.

The alleged theft of the tablet was reported to the Kingston Central Police Station.
