Police Reports indicate that on Saturday, April 8, 2017, the Corozal Police received a video from Custom Officers from the Northern Border Station showing a police vehicle being pursued by Custom Officers.
They reported that on Saturday, at around 2:00p.m., a police vehicle with two police officers inside transporting a black bag in the pan of the pickup, refused to stop at the checkpoint and was subsequently pursued by Custom Officers. However, the vehicle diverted into a feeder road and evaded the officers. In the feeder road Custom Officers recovered a black bag matching the bag that was being transported in the vehicle. It was taken to the Corozal Police Station where it was opened and found to contain assorted slippers, socks and underwear.
The driver of the police vehicle was identified as Police Constable 885 Elston Rojas and the vehicle commander was Police Corporal 263 Abner Marroquin. The Commissioner of Police has since directed that an investigation into the matter be conducted which resulted in both officers being charged with Prejudice to Good Order and Discipline and placed on interdiction from duty.
