THE court yesterday heard shocking allegations that one of the policemen who is supposedly a member of the Uchence Wilson-led gang gave information to the leader that led to the murder of a police informant.
It is alleged that the informant made a report to Detective Corporal Lloyd Knight, who later contacted gang leader Wilson and told him that the now-deceased man was coming to the station and making complaints.
“This was done because Knight told Wilson that the deceased was an informer, as he was always coming to the police station and making reports against Wilson,” prosecutor Jeremy Taylor told the Home Circuit Court yesterday.
Taylor made the revelation as he outlined the role of each accused in the 40-member gang that had been wreaking havoc in seven parishes over the last two years.
Taylor told the court that Knight also provided information to the criminal outfit about targeted businesses and received proceeds from criminal activities.
The prosecutor also advised the court that the policeman was a conspirator in the “Fruits Man” robbery in St Mary.
“Mr Knight received a television out of that robbery and Mr Knight transported the guns used to the place of robbery and took them back after the robbery was committed,” Taylor told the court. more
