  1. The police needs to stop making such grave errors. There perhaps needs to be a shakeup in the investigating team.

    • Do you think any evidence for this case was burnt or damaged in the fire at C.I.D ? Lol just asking. Hey give it up for the former top cop who is now fighting cops. Let’s see if police headquarters have a fire also.
      Just a little humor

  2. Was this man arrested and charged because of association? The old folks always did say.You are known by the company you keep.

  3. Patrick orders police uniform from Jamaica.

    Co-accused takes the rap perhaps with a little encouragement.

    No point in two people suffering for such small amount.

    So Patrick lives to fight another day.

    One of these days luck will run out you can be sure of that.

    The police know what they know but evidence is needed in court especially now Robby on the seen.

  4. Patrick is a scum of the earth and regargless of who know who and whatever strings were pulled, Jah nar sleep dread. Your sins will catch up with you and i hope you’re reading this. Karma will visit you sooner than you expect.

  5. I heard on a radio station news today. He went to Customs to clear the goods. He found the items and alerted the Customs Officer who then called the Police. So if that is the true story. Why did they charge him. His Lawyer is saying. He intends to file a lawsuit against the Police.All of you would know his Lawyer.A former COP.
