Acting Police Commissioner Atlee Rodney has confirmed an incident in which a businessman on gun charges was questioned while he tried to leave the state over the weekend.
Rodney said the police officer did not know that Rey John (not to be confused with Ray John) was given permission to travel.
John’s original bail conditions on gun charges restricted travel but he obtained special permission from a local magistrate before his trip.
Not knowing this, the police officer reportedly pulled John aside after he has checked in.
According to local media reports, the businessman boarded the flight when he was approached by the officer.
When John provided adequate proof that he had permission to travel, he was allowed to go.
He is on $35,000 bail for an incident which occurred at Club Viper which resulted in one man being shot in the head on July 27, 2018.
The victim was not seriously wounded.
