FALMOUTH, Trelawny — A Trelawny woman was this morning released from a jail cell at the newly constructed Falmouth Police Station where she spent the night after accidentally locking the cell door last evening.
Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller officially opened police station yesterday.
After the ceremony, the prime minister led an entourage on a tour of the new facility.
It is reported that after the prime minister's departure, out of curiosity, a woman went into one of the cells and slammed the door shut.
But the keys to the new cell door were not yet handed over to the Falmouth police and were in fact left in Kingston.
According to a police source, a senior police officer had to travel to Kingston Wednesday night to obtain the key.
The tearful woman was reportedly freed from the cell minutes past 1:00 this morning after the Deputy Superintendent of Police returned to Falmouth, armed with the cell door key.
