Sting operation busts father trying to bribe officers with $500,000 to release his son

Police have apparently caught one of the suspects who three days earlier (Tuesday last) escaped, on a motorcycle, from being stopped by officers but not before dropping an unlicenced .32 pistol with 5 rounds on Vlissengen Road.

According to the police, the caught suspect has been identified as a 19-year-old and he was arrested on Friday for unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition.

The twist in the story however, comes as the police report that the suspect’s father was caught in a sting operation trying to bribe an officer with  half a million dollars to release his 19-year-old son.
The father, according to the police, was also arrested and the $500,000 that was offered as a bribe was lodged as exhibits.
Inews had previously reported that  ranks on a motorcycle conducting patrols on the Vlissengen Road, observed the suspects (19-year-old and another) proceeding in front of them on a CG Motorcycle without the rear registration number plate and summoned them to stop, but instead of doing so, the pillion rider, reportedly, took out a firearm from his waist and tossed it in the parapet while the rider sped away.
The weapon and ammunition have since been lodged.
