Several members of the Police Narcotics Branch are now under close arrest following the disappearance of close to two kilograms of cocaine from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Police Headquarters, Eve Leary.
The cocaine was tendered as evidence against 31-year-old Travis Mendonca who was sentenced to three years in prison after he pleaded guilty to a trafficking in narcotics charge.
Acting police commissioner, David Ramnarine has confirmed that an investigation was launched by the Office of Professional Responsibility.
