This information was confirmed by Police “A” Division Commander, Marlon Chapman on Tuesday.
Based on reports received, the motorcycle had been recently seized from a civilian after police had been informed that it was stolen. The cycle was then kept in the compound of the Grove Police Station until officers noticed it was missing on Monday night.
It was later discovered that Constable Anthony Jacobs had taken the keys while his colleagues were busy with their duties.
Inews understands that after several calls to Jacobs went unanswered, a search was launched and he was arrested shortly after.
It was reported in sections of the media that after being approached by ranks, Constable Jacobs fled on the motorcycle and led police on a high speed chase, before they caught up with him at the Demerara Harbour Bridge.
