THE investigation against four police officers, including an acting inspector, into the kidnapping and suspected murder of a Maloney man earlier this year is now at "a sensitive stage".
So said detectives who had been interrogating the officers since their arrest last Friday.
Police said, based on the evidence they had gathered so far, there was the possibility they could be approaching Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Roger Gaspard SC within the next few days to determine if any charges could be laid.
Police did not release the name of the victim but stated the acting inspector, who was last assigned to the San Juan Municipal Corporation, had more than 20 years' service and was said to be in his 40s. The other three Special Reserve Police officers (SRPs) were said to be in their mid-20s.
Officers said following the arrests, a team of detectives led by ACP Wayne Dick and Snr Supt David Abraham went to the San Juan Municipal Police Station where they seized several items, including firearms and an unmarked police vehicle.
Detectives said deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and forensic tests would be carried out to determine if the items were used to commit any crime.
Those arrested are being kept at separate police stations throughout the Northern Division.
