‘$1 300 gone’ after police search
A?WOMAN?is claiming that $1 300 went missing from a money bag she kept under her mattress after police executed a search warrant at her house yesterday.
Rose Burnett, of 4th Avenue, Pickwick Gap, St Michael, said police turned up at her home, which is occupied by five adults and six children, around 9 a.m., broke down two doors and ransacked the house after producing a search warrant.
She admitted she knew the man for whom the police were looking, but declared: “He don’t live here and he don’t frequent here, so I don’t know why they come here looking for him.”
Burnett said the three “jeeploads” of officers barged into the house while she was sitting at the table with her young daughter, eating breakfast.
“They showed me the warrant and when I said that I?was going to the Complaints Authority because they can’t just come in here and destroy things like that, the sergeant took the warrant from off the table, fold it up and put it in his pocket and the other police just start barging into the bedrooms,” she reported.
