Two cops held for misbehaviour in public office

Two police officers have been detained following allegations of misbehaviour in public office. 

The officers were detained yesterday afternoon after allegations were made that they had illegally seized an undisclosed amount of cash, both TT and US currency, from a home during an operation earlier in the day. 

The victims, LoopTT was told, were five Venezuelan nationals. 

A report was subsequently made and a preliminary investigation launched. 

This led to officials from the Professional Standards Bureau being contacted, and the two officers being detained.
