An acting Assistant Commissioner of Police who first reported that his personally issued firearm was stolen from his vehicle at the basement of the Police Administration Building last week Tuesday, says the gun was found.
The weapon, was found in the senior officer’s vehicle the next day.
Acting ACP Radcliffe Boxill made a report to the Central Police Station, on St Vincent Street, that he secured his vehicle at the basement of the Police Administration Building on November 28 at around 8 am and when he returned at about 5 pm, his vehicle appeared to have been tampered with and his pistol was missing. A search was carried out but the gun was not found. The next day, Boxhill told his superiors that he did not do a proper check and the weapon was found in the vehicle. Yesterday, acting Deputy Commissioner of Police Deodath Dulalchan confirmed that his colleague’s missing gun was found and that he was now in charge of the investigation. He said he could not comment any further because of the investigation.
