Screen_Shot_2015-04-17_at_7.51.38_PMWhile the public scrutiny on police mistreatment is still the topic of discussion in many households across the nation, in Caye Caulker, a rogue cop found himself in trouble after extorting money from a visiting tourist. According to the authorities, 25-year-old Stephanie Essiambre, a Canadian tourist reported that last Saturday at about 11:00 p.m., she was at an establishment located on Crocodile Street, Caye Caulker along with some friends in possession of a small quantity of Marijuana.

 

A police officer saw this and approached her. Upon request, she showed it to him and he told her that she was going to jail unless she could provide him with $800. The tourist visited the station and made a report. Police have since arrested and charged Police Constable 621 Daniel Requena for extortion and was granted bail at $3000 and one surety. Requena is scheduled to reappear in court on June 30th.
