Senior Cop moved from handling guns to caring for Animals
By Leroy Smith
From handling high-powered weapons, a Senior Officer of the Guyana Police Force is now the handler of animals after he was fingered in the smuggling of an AK-47 out of the TSU Headquarters.
After that embarrassing incident where an AK-47 assault rifle was found in the vehicle of a civilian after he drove out of the Tactical Services Unit’s Headquarters in Georgetown, the Senior police officer involved has been removed from the unit.
The News Room has been informed that the administration of the force has taken a decision to transfer the police officer from the Tactical Services Unit to the Mounted Branch, the department which supervises the animals owned by the Guyana Police Force.
Acting Commissioner of Police, David Ramnarine told the media today (Friday, March 24, 2017), that while “that file is still receiving advice,… the officer in question whose name was mentioned in the press (ASP Denny) and so has been removed from the Tactical Services Unit to another location.”
He pointed out that “while initial advice was given and the subordinate officers was charged and paced before the courts, the complete advice has not yet been given to use. The file has been returned with some additional points to be cleared up which we are in the process of doing, and that will tell us when we have the final advice what is the extent of the involvement of the other ranks.”
ASP Denny was placed under close arrest on two separate occasions in the past, one about a gun investigation and the other into the disappearance of monies which were to be lodged at a police station, following the serious crimes of murder and robbery.
Recently one police rank was placed before the courts in connection with the AK-47 assault rifle while the ranks that were on duty were required to provide statements concerning the matter even as the internal probe continues.
