KINGSTON, Jamaica — A police constable, Howard Morris, who was recently charged for obtaining money by false pretence, appeared before the Savanna-la-mar Resident Magistrate's Court earlier today.

Morris is accused of collecting money from unsuspecting members of the public for the sale of police vehicles, which he was subsequently unable to deliver.  

Members of the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) arrested Morris on Saturday August 4 during an operation.

Officer in charge of the ACB, Senior Superintendent Selvin Hay says he is now appealing to persons who have paid over monies to this policeman to contact the Branch at 926-9579.

Morris is scheduled to return to court on Tuesday, September 4.
