The mother and brother of recently-suspended Assistant Superintendent of Police Ray John have been detained at the Longford’s Police Station since early yesterday morning.
His mother who is in her mid-sixties and brother (late 40s) arrived last week Thursday from John’s hometown of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and were staying at the policeman’s home in Gunthorpes.
The very next day lawmen raided ASP John’s residence with the K-9 unit as of result investigations in connection with the passport fraud matter that unfolded in St. Vincent.
The officers are said to have had reasonable grounds to believe that both mother and brother can be of assistance to their ongoing investigations.
Arrangements were subsequently made for them to be interviewed by police at 9 am last Friday morning. The very next morning, however, the police were tipped that both family members attempted to take a flight to St. Vincent leaving Antigua at 5 am that morning.
Officers then, fearing that they would abscond, detained the duo and they and are presently held at the Longford’s police cell.
