Fleeing cop charged with buggery
KEVIN Marsh, the 33-year-old police corporal who was held at the Norman Manley International Airport on Friday, has been charged with three counts of buggery and illegal possession of firearm.
The Constabulary Communication Network (CCN), the police's information arm, said that the policeman, who was assigned to the St Andrew North Division, was arrested by members of the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) and the Centre for Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA) after he allegedly attempted to flee the island to Canada.
CCN said that following allegations from the complainant, a file was prepared and submitted to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, which ruled that Marsh be charged.
"On Friday, immigration officers at the Norman Manley International Airport intercepted Corporal Marsh while he was attempting to flee the island to Canada. He was handed over to the police... who then handed him over to the joint team of ACB/CISOCA operatives," said the CCN.
Corporal Marsh is scheduled to appear before the Corporate Area Gun Court on Friday.
