ACTING Commissioner of Police Quinn McCartney confirmed yesterday that police are investigating an incident that occurred at the Prime Minister’s residence on Tuesday.
According to sources, the Prime Minister’s housekeeper reported that some time between 3pm on Tuesday and 8am on Wednesday someone stole or removed a 36-inch flat screen television from the pool room at the Prime Minister’s Cable Beach compound.
An officer attached to the Internal Security Division, responsible for protecting Mr Christie, was arrested at his residence a short time later and taken into custody.
The television was also recovered.
Mr McCartney said police are investigating.
He said: “There was an incident, involving an officer, that occurred at the Prime Minister’s residence, we are looking at the details now but no decision has been made as to how it will be handled.”
PM Perry Christie was out of the country at the second summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) in Havana, Cuba. He was expected to return last night.
