A man of unsound mind, allegedly sneaked onto the Hunts Bay Police Barracks in St Andrew recently, slept, then woke up and got dressed in police gear the following morning.
A police source told OBSERVER ONLINE that the man went unnoticed until he asked one of the officers for $20.
It is said that a senior officer at the Hunts Bay Police Station became suspicious when he noticed the culprit wearing a police vest, back-to-front, on his bare skin.
The unidentified man reportedly proceeded to the guardroom to sign for a firearm and in the process, started begging for money.
According to sources, the man has slept on the police barracks before without being noticed.
However, at least one policeman assigned to the station has expressed concern for the safety and security of lawmen working there.
He said “proper vetting of people entering and leaving the facility needs to be done”. This, he believes, will ensure that unauthorised individuals are prevented from getting past the guardroom.
The lawman also said he was not convinced that the perpetrator was of unsound mind.
