Unregistered motorcycle goes ‘missing’ from Brickdam Station


An unregistered motorcycle which was lodged at the Brickdam Police Station sometime earlier this year following an anti-crime operation has gone missing under controversial circumstances.

The News Room was informed the Brazilian-made motorcycle was not found during a recent inventory check of items either seized or lodged at the station as part of investigations.

It appears that the motorcycle was released to a civilian by a Sergeant at the station. He was reportedly working on instructions from an Assistant Superintendent of Police.

The motorcycle was not released to the person from whom it was seized, News Room understands.

Reports indicate that two senior officers at the station became involved in a heated argument since the officer whose unit lodged the motorcycle was not aware that the other officer instructed that it be released.

In May of this year, a Policeman was arrested for stealing a motorcycle from the Grove Police Station after it was lodged there as part of an investigation.

As per normal, when returning items, the person in whose custody the items are to be released should have proof of ownership, provide a form of identification and also inform investigators of any distinguishing marks on the item(s).

It is unclear if this was done when the motorcycle was handed over to the civilian. (Leroy Smith)
