Three police constables assigned to the Westmoreland Police Division were on Sunday taken into custody by members of the Major Organised Crime and Anti- Corruption Agency (MOCA), in connection with the kidnapping of a 15-year-old boy.
The cops allegedly demanded a ransom of $2 million for the release of the boy, who was held with an illegal firearm.
Reports are that about 10:00 pm Saturday night, the three policemen were conducting an operation along the Waterworks main road in the parish, when they searched passengers on a minibus.
The police held the 15-year-old who was allegedly found in possession of an illegal firearm.
The police officers reportedly held the teen for about 10 hours and called his parents demanding $2 million for his release.
The three were subsequently held by their colleagues.
