Appearing in Magistrates Court this morning [Sept 22], a 49-year-old police officer was charged with tipping off someone that police were  investigating a money-laundering matter.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo granted Mr Carrington bail at $10,000 and set mention for next month.

According to the police website, Inspector Emmerson Carrington joined the Bermuda Police Service on the 1st June 2003, after serving with the Royal Barbados Police Force for 17 years and attaining the rank of Sergeant.

He has served in several departments and units within the Service, including all three police stations, Criminal Investigations, Serious Crime, Community Action Team and Training School.

Commenting on the matter, Assistant Commissioner Martin Weekes said, “A serving police officer appeared in Magistrates Court today charged with an offense in relation to an ongoing investigation.

“The officer is currently suspended pending the outcome of the Court Case. As this matter is now before the courts the BPS will have no further comment on this matter until the conclusion of the case.”
